PORTUGAL CLAIMS FIRST EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIP TITLE...1-0 IN EXTRA TIME



Portugal wins the 2016 European Championship,after substitute Eder scored in extra time to give his team a 1-0 win over France.

Eder's long-range shot that beat the despairing dive of France captain Hugo Lloris has sealed a first ever major tournament win for Portugal, beating the hosts despite losing captain Cristiano Ronaldo to a first-half injury.


Despite losing star man Cristiano Ronaldo early to a knee injury, Portugal stuck to manager Fernando Santos’ discipline defensive tactics.


Ronaldo was taken off on a stretcher off in the 25th minute after he failed to recover from a heavy challenge by France's attacking midfielder Dimitri Payet. He returned to sit on the bench, his left knee bandaged, and limped onto the pitch to encourage his teammates at the start of both periods of extra time.
