Cross produced by Bale for Hal Robson Kanu found McAuley and he didn’t disappoint Ronaldo, he scored in his own nets which ended till the last breath of the match. Although Aaron Ramsey scored in the first half but it was ruled out because of an off-side call. Aaron Ramsey played an important role throughout the game. But still Stuart Dallas and Jamie Ward were all over the Wales goalkeeper in the first half, had couple of great shots but they were useless as Northern Ireland failed to score even a single goal.

The Arsenal midfielder, who opened his tournament account in the 3–0 victory over Russia, reacted first to turn home Sam Vokes’ knock-down but was correctly adjudged offside.In a half of few chances Hennessey then turned a firm strike from Ward over the crossbar, while the period ended for Wales without a shot on target and with top scorer Bale restricted to a single effort from the penalty area. But still they tried their level best as their Vokes headed Ramsey’s cross of the opponents nets. Northern Ireland keeper was sitting with a cup of coffee throughout the first half but he had to move in the second half after a dipping free kick by Madristian.
The Madrid front-man produced numerous troubles throughout the match but his team mates were unable to make his pass into assist. He himself also had numerous shots on the goal post but those were neatly blocked by the Northern Ireland Goalkeeper. But at the end he was able to produce a resulting cross but it was sent in the post by his opponent.
Now the biggest concern for Wales will be their captain Ashley Williams who suffered an arm injury and had to play the last 10 minutes with an injured arm.
Wales are only 3 steps away from becoming the Soccer Champions of Europe.
