Portugal Euro win breaks French hearts

France 0 Portugal 0 (0-1 after extra time) (Paris 10 July)

A Portuguese goal in extra time stunned France as Portugal lifted the Euro 2016 trophy in Paris. In the 10th minute Payet floated in a diagonal cross but Griezmann's header towards the top corner was tipped over by Rui Patricio in the Portuguese goal. The major talking point of the first half was Ronaldo's knee injury sustained early in the match that lead to him finally being stretchered off in the 25th minute. Griezmann missed a header from close range in the 66th minute and in the 80th minute at the other end Nani's goal-bound cross had Lloris flapping with Quaresma overhead kicking the rebound into the arms of the grateful keeper while 4 minutes later Patricio dived to his right to parry Sissoko's long distance piledriver. In stoppage time France were inches away from victory when Gignac turned in the box to beat Pepe but saw his effort from the corner of the 6-yard box agonisingly roll off the post. In the 108th minute Guerreiro's free kick from an erroneously awarded handball came off the underside of the bar and a minute later Lloris was once again beaten when Eder held off a defender and smacked a low ball from outside the box into the corner of the net to break the deadlock and give Portugal the European crown.
