Paris, July 11: Euro 2016 belongs to Cristiano Ronaldo's Portugal as they defeated France last night (July 10) 1-0 in the finals. Eder scored the all important goal in 109th minute to seal his nation's fate. This was Portugal's first major international trophy.
Fernando Santos's men did the impossible at Paris as they go past the last hurle on their road to triumph. Hosts France were clear favourites on paper, but the football god had other plans.
The Portuguese especially Cristiano Ronaldo waited for 12 years for this moment. The last he played Euro final in 2004 they lost 1-0 to Greece.
Portugal's start though did not as per plan as their star Ronaldo was stretchered off the field owing to a knee injury. Ricardo Quaresma replaced the Real Madrid attacker in the 20th minute.
As Portugal win their maiden international honour, twitteratti go berserk. Here are some of the best tweets.
