>> They may be teammates in Spain, but come Wednesday, Christiano Renaldo and Gareth Bale will be foes in Europe head to head in the Euro 2016 semi-final. The Welsh superstar will face the biggest game of his career, while Renaldo with 31 has had more shots than anyone else in the tournament, will be fighting for his first international trophy with Portugal.

Reuters Edham Reed is in Paris, waiting for one of the teams to come back victorious.>> Now, it has been billed as Bale against Ronaldo, but Real Madrid star has reminded everyone it's 11 against 11, when Wales played Portugal for a place in the final of Euro 2016.
00:00:42
The Welsh are in the last four by virtue of that now famous quarter-final comeback win against Belgium. It did come at a cost though, with Aaron Ramsey and Ben Davis both picking up second yellow cards at the tournament. They're now suspended, and Johnny Williams and James Collins are favorites to come in and replace them.
00:01:00
Their manager, Chris Coleman, has told them and the country, to keep dreaming. That's despite Wales already making history as the first debutante team at a European Championships to make the last four since Sweden back in 1992. Now, as for Portugal, unbelievably, they've played five matches at Euro 2016, and failed to win a single one in 90 minutes.
00:01:21
They needed extra time to beat Croatia in the last 16, and penalties to beat Poland in the quarter finals. Christiano Ronaldo, well, he does have two goals already at the tournament, but hasn't really hit top form. In fact, it's been his teammate Pepe that's probably been the stand-out player for Portugal in the center of their defense.
00:01:41
>> The winning side will be off to Paris to face either Germany or hosts France on Sunday.
