A goal each from Cristiano Ronaldo and Nani was enough to see Portugal beat Wales 2-0 and ease into the final of Euro 2016.

Gareth Bale had the most notable chance of a fairly even first half but his effort from outside the box was straight at Rui Patrício who claimed with a minimum of fuss.

The second half was barely five minutes old when Ronaldo rose above the Wales defence to plant a firm header past Wayne Hennessey.

And Chris Coleman’s men barely had time to regain their composure when Nani slid in just three minutes later to poke home Ronaldo’s mishit shot and double his side’s advantage.

Bale was always going to be Wales’ most likely avenue back into the game, but Portugal were wise to his threat and restricted the Real Madrid man to efforts from distance, as Portugal pretty comfortably saw out the remainder of the match.
