Portugal scored two goals in three minutes to secure a 2-0 win over Wales in the 1st semi-finals at EURO 2016, by booking a place in Sunday’s final.

Ronaldo successfully broke Michel Platini’s record by scoring his Tenth European Championship goal for Portugal. The Real Madrid superstar scored first via a powerful header five minutes after the interval following a drab first 45 minutes, before Nani diverted the aforementioned Ronaldo’s shot into the net three minutes later.

Wales struggled to get back into the game afterwards as Fernando Santos’ side sealed a place in the final. The second-half began with more Portuguese pressure. A foul on Adrien Silva led to a free-kick that led to a corner that led to a goal. It was always going to be an uphill slog from the valleys after that. 

Portugal have now reached the final for the first time on foreign soil and will now face either world champions Germany or hosts France in Sunday’s final.
