Video: Cristiano Ronaldo and Nani both net for 2-0 lead over Wales in Euro 2016

Not one, but two former Manchester United strikers got Portugal on the scorecard early in the second half of the Euro 2016 Semi-Finals against Wales – but far more importantly, Cristiano Ronaldo got his goal.

After a scoreless first half, Portugal found themselves in a set piece situation – and from there Ronaldo did his best kangaroo impression, jumping over the pile on the kick to put it past Wayne Hennessey.

Minutes later Nani – who unsuccessfully replaced Ronaldo at Man United after the star striker’s move to Real Madrid in 2009 – added the second goal to double the lead for Portugal.

Real Madrid fans will likely be dancing in the streets as the goal for Ronaldo occurred just hours after Barcelona megastar Lionel Messi was convicted of tax fraud.
