This is supposed to be the struggle of two quite stubborn teams; Portugal barely made it to every next round of the playoffs thanks to huge efforts in the overtime, but they’re still there. And Wales won four of the last five games; Bale and his comrades seem to be in terrific shape and mood.
Both teams faced staffing problems before the game; Portuguese defender Pepe suffers hip unjury, and Welsh Aaron Ramsey and Ben Davis will have to watch the game from the bench because of too many yellow cards in previous matches. However, there is no doubt both squads will give their opponents hell before one of them makes it to the final game, slated for July 10.
