Wales lose 2-0 to Portugal in the opening semi-final

Cristiano Ronaldo scores Portugal's opening goal

The match had been billed in some quarters as a private battle between Real Madrid team-mates Ronaldo and Gareth Bale, and the Portuguese won it hands down after a cagey and scoreless first period.

The first half was an end to end action, with both sides failing to create plenty of goal scoring opportunities.

This has been a tournament where Ronaldo has not been at his brilliant best, scoring only twice in five games.
