Swansea wing-back Neil Taylor believes that Cristiano Ronaldo and his Portugal teammate will be wary of Wales heading into the Euro 2016’s semi-finals on Wednesday.
Wales defeated favourites Belgium in the quarter-finals despite going a goal down after Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan’s stunning strike put the Red Devils ahead at Stade Pierre-Mauroy, but Chris Coleman’s side rallied back to win courtesy goals from Ashley Williams, Hal Robson-Kanu and Sam Vokes.
“It’s just not sinking in, the euphoria, but when we see pictures of back home, I don’t know, it could be a Bank Holiday or something. There will be a lot of people taking sick days,” he said.
“It’s unbelievable. Like I say: until we get back home we probably don’t realise what we have done here but there is a lot of emotion in that changing room at the moment.
“It’s obvious to say now that we have the belief that we can beat anybody. We have always said that. We’re not lying when we say these things. And tonight I think we deserved the win, I don’t think we nicked it, I don’t even think it was like the game in Cardiff when we beat them 1-0 and were hanging on for long periods.
“I think here we were pretty assured and to win 3-1 I think is unbelievable. Portugal probably before the game would have thought ‘I hope we get Wales and not Belgium’ but hopefully looking at the game they will think differently now.”
