Aaron Ramsey’s yellow card against Belgium proved to be incredibly costly.
It was the Welshman’s second yellow card in five games, which meant he missed out on the semi-final clash against Portugal and boy, did his country need him.
The Wales team, which had previously excited just about everyone who watched them, was lacklustre, defensive and boring to watch. Portugal weren’t particularly good, Wales were just poor – it was painful.
Their midfield was completely missing and they really needed Rambo in there, dictating play and connecting the pieces of a puzzle that had previously fitted together so perfectly. Even Gareth Bale couldn’t inspire the team and Portugal progressed to the final after winning 2-0.
