Euro 2016: Portugal are dangerous despite not winning in 90 - Wales star Bale

Gareth Bale has stated that Portugal cannot be underestimated despite their failure to win a single game inside 90 minutes at Euro2016 so far.

Wales prepare to square off against Portugal in the semi-finals in Lyon on Wednesday and many feel that the Dragons have a great chance of progressing to the final as their opponents on the night have not yet won a single game within normal time during the competition.

Despite Portugal's inability to win matches, Wales star Bale is not getting complacent and has warned that his side will need to do well in order to reach the final of the Euros.

The Real Madrid star told talkSPORT: "We know what tournament they've had, we've watched all their games, but they're still a dangerous team. We understand that.

"They're ranked very highly in the world and they're in the semi-final for a reason. Even if they haven't won, they've got the result they've needed.

"We'll do our homework as normal and prepare right and hopefully on the night we can put a great performance in and get another historic result.

"If we continue playing the way we have been, we've got a very good chance of winning."
