Portugal Beats Wales, Advances to Euro Final

On Wednesday afternoon, Portugal faced off against Wales in the semifinal of the 2016 Euro Cup. The winner would go on to play in the final round on Sunday, versus the winner of Germany vs France. After a hard fought match, Portugal came out on top 2-0.

                Portugal star Christiano Ronaldo started the scoring just after halftime on a brilliant header and Nani added a goal shortly after to give Portugal the commanding lead.

                For Wales, the disappointing semifinal match can’t put a damper on their tournament. Very few people expected Wales to advance this far and the small country should be proud of their performance. They hung tough with Portugal after one half, but the athletic team was just too much for them.

                For Portugal, the win puts them in position to win their first major trophy. Although the winner of France and Germany will not be an easy match, the team, led by Christiano Ronaldo, has a good shot of making history.
