Cristiano Ronaldo scored one and assisted the other goal for Nani as the Red Dragons fell just short of reaching Sunday’s showpiece against either France or Germany.

But their two talismanic figures were quick to raise the spirits of a nation by celebrating what Wales achieved, rather than reflect on what could have been.

Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey, who missed the semi-final through suspension, reminded the Welsh supporters why they have reason to be “immensely proud”.

And Real Madrid superstar Gareth Bale insisted that the Red Dragons should not have any regrets about last night, while uniting with Ramsey with the “TogetherStronger” mantra.
