I said that Portugal would fluke the whole thing after they got that side of the draw after not winning a game and coming 3rd in the group. I'm now sure of it.

This is only the second decent team Wales have played so hopefully they'll stop going on about how well they've done. I like them but the media the last few days has been hysterical, it makes me thankful that England don't get to semis.

He wasn't ball watching he stepped up to play offside as they should have done but the others didn't go. That's down to Williams but you can't account for a scuffed shot no matter how good a defender you are.

Just needs someone to wind Ronaldo up into another yellow, then tip a wink to the bench.

Been impressed with that Danilo for Portugal. He has done a great job for them just sitting there in front of Portugal a defence

Every time I hear Chester's name I can't seem to forget that clearance he shanked into his own net in front of the Bobby Moore stand in that dire game against Hull when Allardyce did the ear cupping thing.

Bale has been poor. Dropped too deep, misplaced passes and trying too hard.

Portugal are not a great side. I think Coleman will rue having spent a lot of the game just having his 3 x CBs pass between themselves.

For the record, despite classifying myself as English, I've lived in Wales for years and had a Welsh grandparent. I have supported Wales throughout the tournament, except the England game - mainly because I'd never hear the end of it if England lost!

Tonights match has been dire. Wales have desperately missed Davies, whose been excellent throughout and particularly Aaron Ramsey. Don't believe the Bale hype - Ramsey's been Wales' best player by a mile and they've really missed him tonight.

I'm disappointed that Bale wasn't pushed on more, he's played too deep to be a real threat. Its a great achievement to make the semi's, fair play to them.
