    At the end of the day you still can not win a match in 90 minutes. Now go and celebrate with your Ronaldo fanbase. Thank you very much and goodnight

    Thank you for showing your true self.

    Good night.

    P.S.: Ronaldo was appaling today. Everybody here knows that. Or actually, in 4 out of 5 games.

    So now we have Belgium vs Wales coming up! It is the usual with every Euro tie, I just want to watch it right this second but we have to wait because it is the way it is. I am still sticking by my prediction that is Belgium who are indeed my favourites in their bracket to get to the final, but Wales do have a chance. They have beaten Belgium before, and they are certainly capable of doing it again! I believe it will be quite a standoff. For now, let us discuss while we look forward to the match!

    At the end of the day, Portugal is in the semis. Group Stage and previous rounds become irrelevant.

    Well Poland vs Portugal was even just as I thought. I knew someone would steal it in extra time or penalties and actually tipped Poland to before, but I am not surprised at all that Portugal did it. I somehow thought Szcezney would be back by now. Anyway both teams missed tons of chances, but Portugal were the better side by a bit. Now I think its Belgium next for the Portuguese.

    I agree with you. I was very sure that they could both go to extra time, I mean they both went to extra time in the round of 16 and the way they both played made me sure that they were going to extra time with all the passing around and lack of finishing. I also predict it will be Belgium vs Portugal as well, but at the same time I also feel like Wales have a chance of beating Belgium

    I'm not sure why people consider this result to be an upset.

    Wales beat Belgium 1-0 on aggregate over the two legs of their Euro 2016 qualifiers...

    Does anyone else think Wales have a great chance of reaching the final now? Portugal haven't won a game in 90 minutes yet. Ronaldo's ego is definitely going to inflate when he goes up against Bale, which could be portugals undoing. Wales showed last night that they're a team. Has the potential to be a belter, whatever happens.

    The suspensions make me think Wales' run could be over Wednesday but stranger things have happed.
    Congrats to Wales for believing in themselves and finding ways to win impressively.

    Ramsey's suspension is going to hurt Wales a lot, but anything can happen in knockout matches given PK's.

    Wales doesn't have to win the match, they just have to draw and get lucky on PK's....and I'd say they've got a more than reasonable chance of doing that...

    Isn't Davies suspended as well? How key is he? Maybe Wales could beat Portugal not sure. Also depends how Portugal show up.

    I think the game may go like the England game. Wales may take the lead and look good but some late individual skill and opportunism will probably win the game for Portugal.

    I absolutely agree with you. Wales have the better chance of reaching the final for all the reasons you pointed out and I will definitely support them on doing so for obvious reasons
    As key of a player as Ramsey is to Wales, I feel that the Wales midfield is strong enough to work together without Ramsey. You see I sometimes noticed that Ramsey was used as a right winger which tells you that the Wales midfield can hold themselves together just as well with Ramsey on the wing and not in central midfield. It was good that Coleman put Ramsey on the wing sometimes because it is good for their central midfield to get used to playing alongside eachother with their best central midfielder in a different position incase situations like this came up. However one player Wales definitely do not want to lose is Ledley, their main defensive midfielder and of course we all know how important defensive midfielders are to any team. I also think Allen is good enough to cope without Ramsey as well

    One thing I am going to miss in 2020 is the Home field advantage. Having the teams play in random European cities takes away from scenes like we are seeing in France.
    But oh well. I do like the idea of having smaller Footballing nations like Kazakhstan get to host Euro matches.

    I kind of am happy about that. Sometimes host countries get favored by referee's, although Euro 2016 has had some of the best referees in a long time.
