Portugal will face either France or Germanyin the final which will take place on Sunday.

This is the second time Portugal have reached finals after a 2004 embarrassing loss to Greece.

After the game Ronaldo praised his teammates for fighting to the last minute.

“We deserved to win the game, we were on top of the game and we contained Wales”, said Ronaldo.

On the other side, Bale was disappointed with the loss.

“We were too close to the finals but we have slipped off. It wasn’t our day but we are proud that we have reached this far”, said Bale.
