1st semifinal – Gareth Bale vs. Cristiano Ronaldo

300

The match looks like Batmen vs Superman both play against each other for their countries and after few months both plays for the same Spanish Club Real Madrid.

Real Madrid teammates Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo are set to go head-to-head in Lyon this Wednesday.

After a win against Belgium in the Euro 2016 quarter-finals, Wales are now all set to face Portugal.

Goals from Ashley Williams, Hal Robson-Kanu and Sam Voakes ensured the greatest win in their footballing history and Wales reached to Semis first time after 1958.

On the other side Portugal was not able to score so many goals in this tournament they scored just 1 goal against Poland and Ronaldo also looks like out of the touch.

So if Portugal wants to reach to Final of the tournament then they have to stop Wales by scoring more goals as they did against Poland.

Portugal’s defends played very well against Poland and another Madrid player was there for Portugal was Pepe so it’s really interesting battle on this Wednesday.

Bale and Ronaldo — the two most expensive players in football history — but the Welshman says he does not care about their private battle and says he is only interested in creating more history for his country.

“It’s Portugal versus Wales, nothing more,” Bale said when asked about coming up against his teammate Ronaldo at the Parc Olympique Lyonnais.

“It’s in our hands now, but we can’t afford to look past the semifinal. We just have to keep doing what we’ve been doing and we’ll stick to that.”

“We’re very proud at what the ’58 team did,” said Bale. “They had some amazing players.

“But we’ve always spoken that this is our time to shine, and we’ve definitely done that.

“It’s going to be an amazing day [of the semifinal], we’ve already made history and hopefully we can make more.

“We’re just enjoying being here, we’re enjoying the ride — It’s our time and we look forward to the semi-final.”

“It’s just incredible. We knew we had it in us, we obviously had a game plan,” Bale said.

“We felt we knew Belgium well from previous games and we executed the plan amazingly.

“We covered every blade of glass and definitely deserved the win.

“We’ve grown in confidence, we’ve been learning from maybe mistakes we’ve made before.

“We kept the ball very well and we felt very comfortable.

“We know they’re a very good side with a lot of talented individuals, but we showed what a true team we are.”
