Portugal Players celebrating after Eder score the winner goal

The underdogs had their day in the Euro 2016 final as Portugal overcame hosts France in Paris.

Fernando Santos’ side sneaked out of their group with three draws and rode their luck in Sunday’s final before snatching a victory in dramatic fashion in the second half of extra time.

Inside a buzzing Stade de France, their task was made all the more difficult when star man Cristiano Ronaldo was forced off in the first half, but Portugal dug deep to keep the hosts out despite huge pressure.

Raphael Guerreiro struck the post with a gorgeous free-kick in the additional 30 minutes but Swansea reject Eder was the hero for A Seleccao, rifling home to seal a memorable win against the odds.
