If you haven't already read the news, well then, let me put it as simply as I can. Portugal stunned hosts France (whichever way you look at it, France were overwhelmingly the favourites) to win the Euro 2016 tournament. It was Eder's strike in the 109th minute that sealed the game 1-0. Cristiano Ronaldo may have been streterched off in just he 25th minute but Portugal fought and they deserved the victory in the end.
"The victory for the national side is recognition of the value of Portuguese soccer and gives prestige to our country," said the Portuguese Football Association in a statement.
Football is not just confined to a few countries. Football is a global sport. The European Championship again reaffirmed that point. From New Delhi to New York City, no matter what time of the day it was, fans of the sport were eagerly watching each and every match.
France had dominated the match in the first 90 minutes. Thereafter, it was all Portugal. Fans - or as they say 12th man - are an integral part of every team, whether inside the stadium or outside.
Portugal won their first major football tournament and it showed in the reactions of their fans. Fireworks, loud music and more ensued shortly after Portugal's win.
