FOOTBALL / EURO 2016: France - Portugal (0-1, ap): The Blues only have eyes to cry


Portugal won the first major title in its history on Sunday at the Stade de France. A goal from Eder in the 109th minute gave the Lusitanians victory over France in the final. The Blues have never been able to find the opening against the iron defense of the Portuguese, and in particular their guardian, Rui Patricio.

And Eder came to crucify the Blues. Yes, Eder. It was not the hero that Portugal expected, or the danger that France feared. But it is he who will forever remain in history for having offered the Portuguese selection the very first international title in its history. At the heart of the extension, the Lille striker tore himself away to come and adjust Hugo Lloris with a strike from 25 meters and plunge most of the Stade de France in amazement (1-0 ap). Defeated, the Blues have not managed to do as well as their illustrious predecessors, sacred at home to Euro 84 and the 1998 World Cup. It is a terrible disillusionment for Didier Deschamps and his men._AF
