Portugal reached their first Euro Championship final on foreign soil after beating Wales 2-0 on Wednesday.
Captain, Cristiano Ronaldo headed in a corner in the 50th minute to put the Seleccao in front after an end-to-end first half which failed to produce many goal scoring chances.
And before Wales could recover, Nani turned in Ronaldo shot to make it 2-0.
Having sparked Portugal into taking control early in the second half by scoring one and creating the second, the Real Madrid man came close to making it 3-0 when a 25-yard free kick brushed the roof of the net.
Nani’s deflected shot was then fumbled by Hennessey, with Joao Mario firing the rebound wide when he should have put the game beyond any doubt.
Coleman brought on strikers Sam Vokes and Simon Church, as well as attacking midfielder Jonny Williams, and Vokes soon headed a tough chance over the bar as Wales sought a route back into the match.
Ronaldo was booked for fouling Williams, but Wales were struggling to test Rui Patricio while Portugal continued to come forward at every opportunity.
Renato Sanches ran at a backpedalling defence before cutting inside and lashing over, while Bale saw a 35-yard effort comfortably saved as Wales began to run out of ideas.
Hennessey saved a Danilo shot with time running out, grabbing the ball almost on the line with Nani poised to tap in his second goal of the game, and Bale saw a late free kick blocked.
But Portugal ended the evening on the attack, with Ronaldo firing into the side-netting from a tight angle as Welsh dreams of reaching the final evaporated.
The win is Portugal’s first win within 90 minutes at the tournament.
