The Arsenal midfielder and Tottenham full-back will be unavailable for the meeting with Portugal after picking up their second yellow cards of the tournament against Belgium

Wales will have to cope without Aaron Ramsey and Ben Davies for their Euro 2016 semi-final clash with Portugal after both players picked up their second yellow card of the tournament against Belgium.

The absence of the Arsenal midfielder will come as a particular blow to Chris Coleman's side, with the 25-year-old having claimed two assists to help the Welsh claim a memorable 3-1 win in Friday's quarter-final tie.

Coleman's men, who trailed early on in the game courtesy of Radja Nainggolan's stunning long-range strike, memorably fought back through goals from Ashley Williams, Hal Robson-Kanu and Sam Vokes, with Ramsey setting up the first two.

Portugal, meanwhile, will be without William Carvalho for the crunch semi-final tie, with the Sporting Lisbon midfielder shown his second yellow card of the competition for pulling back Poland midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak.
