A Seleção delivered crushing blow to the hosts of the tournament in Euro 2016 final game. It was all the more hard to believe it as Portugal’s key player Ronaldo suffered some tough injury to the knee and had to leave the pitch on stretchers. It seemed France had had a huge advantage now; but it eventually turned otherwise.
Both Portugal and France kept clean sheets for 90 minutes, with not so many moments to remember for both of the squads. It took an extra time to break the ice. With Eder scoring at 108’, Les Bleus found themselves in quite an awkward position.
The dramatic struggle went on, with Deschamps’s men desperately trying to make it at least a tie; watching that must have been true heartache for the French fans. Within the last minute of the match, French midfielder Martial could have evened the odds with a powerful shot, but it was blocked just in time.
Well, Euro 2016 is over, and Europe has a new champion now – the bold and wildly determined Portuguese. Felicitações!
