Portugal take on Wales on Wednesday 6th July, 2016, with kickoff at 20:00. This match is currently being shown LIVE on ITV.
The two big men in Madrid meet tonight while twenty other guys carry their water, or at least you’d think that was the narrative based on the recent media coverage. In reality that is not entirely true of either team, although it is probably closer to the truth for Portugal than many of their proud professionals would care to admit.
From a Welsh point of view, a lot of what has made their team so successful can be found in Gareth Bale, and his willingness to work for the team despite being a higher-rank of player, and that could prove the difference.
