Portugal skipper Cristiano Ronaldo anticipated sobbing tears as the Portuguese men won the match 2-0 in the epic semi-final clash against Wales. The Real Madrid star scored with a splendid 50th-minute header in Lyon on Wednesday and after that, Nani up for a snappy fire second objective as Portugal fit the bill for just their second significant final. The furious Ronaldo later said –
The team did a marvellous job to reach the final. I hope on Sunday you’ll see me crying with joy. I always said I wanted to win something with Portugal. I’ve been at the highest level for 13 years. The statistics never lie.
Ronaldo’s third goal of the competition saw him tie France incredible Michel Platini’s record of nine goals at European Championship finals. He now trails competition top scorer Antoine Griezmann of France by one goal. Let us all hope that may Ronaldo score for at least once and sets record as well as clinch the title for his country. Portugal will play the winners of Thursday’s second semi-final between hosts France and title holders Germany in Sunday’s last at the Stade de France.
