Euro2016: No love lost between Real Madrid superstars Bale and Ronaldo

Wales head coach Chris Coleman expects Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo to cast aside their friendship in this week's Euro2016 semi-final.

Bale and his Welsh teammates will take on the mighty Ronaldo and his Portugal in the final four of the UEFA tournament on Wednesday night and Coleman believes their Real Madrid ties will have absolutely no affect on how they perform in Lyon.

"They are two of best players on planet, they know each other well but I don't suppose there will be any love lost," said Coleman.

"Both teams know what's at stake, any friendship waits until after the game and our approach will be the same.

"We can't afford to stop and think."
