    The weight of expectation is squarely on Portugal's shoulders, probably for the first time in the knockout stage, they are firmly the favourites with their prior matchups more evenly weighted. The Welsh will be missing the two players (not named Bale) - Ramsey and Davies - they would least like to have been without (even Ashley Williams has a solid replacement in Collins to come off the bench). The missing William Carvahlo is important for Portugal as well for the balance he provides in midfield but Danilo should be an able replacement.

    Portugal as the favourites will be expected to make the running, something which they have not done as yet in the elimination games and if they choose to sit back, this could be a dour, low-scoring game.

    Far more than a Ronaldo-Bale matchup!

    Bale will outshine Crissy and will show him how to play for the team rather than have the team play for you and despite the Welsh players that will be absent, The Red Dragons will scorch and make sardines out of Portugal and will crush them either 3-1 or 3-0!!!:)

    All the butthurt Barca fanboys upset their idol is a HGH-injecting, tax-evading criminal who choked it for his entire country and every international stage 4 years in a row and then quit on his entire country. Shameful, disgusting. Messi fanboys crying and praying to god Wales beats Portugal.

    Which would be the biggest choke for Portugal? Getting beat by Wales today or Greece 12 years ago?

    Just to add, saying that Wales is going to beat Portugal. ..what the heck does Messi have to do with that?? In fact as a Brazil fan seeing Argentina lose, is like watching the sun come up in the morning!!

    Just because you have a couple of Barcelona fans picking Wales to win, that doesn't mean there's an ulterior motive against Cristiano Ronaldo or Real Madrid!!

    Btw....Messi did win a Gold Medal with Argentina!!

    How is it that you have two teams whose primary jersey color is red, and NEITHER team is wearing red in this match?

    That is kind of strange that neither team decided to wear red. IT would be interesting to know what the reasoning is behind the decisions.

    Uefa said the Welsh grey was too similiar to the Portuguese dark red

    Portugal with some good possession. Just can't create a good shot on goal.

    Renato Sanches is going to be Portugal's Edgar Davids for the next 15 years or so.
    Kid is mature beyond his years.
