Sports Illustrated: France to face Portugal in Euro 2016 final game
Stade de France in Paris will host the match on July 10
France is closing in on a third straight major tournament win on home soil after beating incumbent world champions, Germany, 'in a compelling, captivating, stunning semifinal at the Stade Velodrome in Marseille. It will now play Portugal in Sunday’s final at the Stade de France in Paris', Sports Illustrated reported.
Portugal may have preferred to face Germany, given its record against France. Portugal has not beaten France in 10 games, and it's lost two semifinals, at Euro 2000 and the 2006 World Cup (both decided on controversial penalties). There were also two recent defeats in friendlies. 'This tournament has seen teams break lengthy hexes in the last two rounds, though, with Germany overcoming Italy for the first time in competitive play and France beating Germany for the first time in a tournament since 1958', the outlet wrote.

In the semifinals, France and Portugal kicked out Germany and Wales, respectively.
