Ronaldo leads Portugal celebrations
Cristiano Ronaldo (C) of Portugal celebrates with teammates and the trophy after winning the UEFA EURO 2016 Final match between Portugal and France at Stade de France in Saint-Denis, France on July 10. Portugal won 1-0.
Portugal found an unlikely hero as Eder's thunderous finish deep into extra time secured their first European Championship title after they overcame the early loss of Cristiano Ronaldo to snatch a 1-0 victory over hosts France on Sunday.
The substitute picked the perfect time to score his first competitive goal for his country, marauding forward before letting fly with a bullet shot from 25 metres in the 109th minute.
It was a magic moment for the 28-year-old, who plays for French club Lille after a largely unglamorous career, and a cruel blow for France and their coach Didier Deschamps.
His side had dominated the match, but squandered a number of chances, in front of their devastated home support, who arrived at the Stade de France hoping to celebrate a third European crown.
The trophy was lifted triumphantly by Portugal captain Ronaldo, who broke down in tears at the final whistle after his own game had come to a frustrating end after 24 minutes when he was carried off the pitch on a stretcher with a knee injury.
The script had been written for him to produce a performance to match his status as one of the game's greats, but he had to settle for a back-stage role after Dimitri Payet's challenge left him in a heap on the floor.
So much of the build-up had focused on Ronaldo and his hopes of crowning a glittering career with the only achievement missing from his CV, a piece of international silverware.
That was achieved, but, with Eder stealing the limelight and his own role reduced to that of a cajoling cheerleader, it was probably not how Ronaldo would have envisaged his evening panning out.
Yet having been part of the Portugal side that were stunned in the final as hosts by Greece in 2004, he celebrated wildly with his team mates as ticker tape rained down from the rafters.
"This is one of the happiest moments in my career," he said. "I've always said I wanted to win a trophy with the national team and make history. And I did it. Thank God, things went well for us."
Coach Fernando Santos, whose side had won only one match inside 90 minutes out of seven at the tournament, hailed a perfectly executed tactical display.
"We were as simple as doves and as wise as serpents," he said.
"Wherever we've gone there have always been Portuguese fans. This lifted our souls. It's hard to describe the players' emotions -- it's incredible."
For France it was a debilitating defeat after they had come into the match as heavy favourites and hoping to lift the spirits of a nation still recovering from last November's attacks in Paris.
"We missed a chance, maybe not a unique chance, but a great chance to become European champions," Deschamps said.
"Our disappointment is immense and will take time to digest. We won together, we suffered together and we lost together. It would have been magnificent to offer this trophy to our supporters, here at home."
For the much of the match, there had looked like being only one winner as France began with early attacking intent, fuelled by the bullish presence and charging runs of Moussa Sissoko in midfield.
His 34th-minute shot was well-parried by Portugal keeper Rui Patricio, but by that point the match had settled into a pattern of France probing and pushing but struggling to break down their more defensively-minded opponents.
Without Ronaldo, Portugal seemed in no hurry to rush the ball forward, happy to see the game descend into a cagey, tactical battle.
They had a scare, however, in the 67th minute when Kingsley Coman's cross found Antoine Griezmann unmarked six metres from goal, only for the tournament's top scorer to head a golden opportunity over.
Minutes later, Olivier Giroud, fed by sprightly substitute Coman, forced a diving save from Patricio, who then parried away a pile-driver from Sissoko as France turned the screw.
France's best chance of the night arrived in stoppage time when substitute Andre-Pierre Gignac turned his marker inside out before scuffing a shot past the keeper and against the post, with the ball bouncing across the face of goal and then out of harm's way.
While Portugal continued to sit back in extra time, they had the better chances with Eder's header parried by Hugo Lloris and Raphael Guerreiro striking the crossbar with a free kick before Eder's moment of magic.-Reuters

Hamilton on top of the world
Winner British Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton of Mercedes AMG GP celebrates after winning the 2016 Formula One Grand Prix of Great Britain at Silverstone race track, on July 10.
Hamilton won his home British Grand Prix for the third year in a row on Sunday with Mercedes team mate and title rival Nico Rosberg finishing second but under a stewards' investigation.
The triple Formula One world champion's fourth home win, from pole position in tricky conditions, was the 47th victory of his career and cut Rosberg's overall lead to four points after 10 of 21 races.
Rosberg was slowed by a gearbox problem five laps from the end and crossed the line 6.9 seconds behind, with a question mark over his result after Mercedes seemingly broke the rules on radio advice by telling him to avoid seventh gear.
Red Bull's Dutch teenager Max Verstappen was third, 1.3 seconds behind Rosberg, in a race that began behind the safety car after heavy rain before starting properly at the end of the fifth lap.
"I don't know if you can be as happy as me but I'm really happy," Hamilton told the 130,000-strong crowd that stood and cheered him all the way round the final lap with the sun shining brightly at last.
The Briton got even closer to the fans, who flooded onto the track, after parking up at the finish, and then enjoyed some celebratory crowd-surfing after the podium presentation.
"I'm glad that the good English weather came out. It was so tricky in those conditions. When we started the race, I was the first one who had to attack it," said the champion.
"It's never plain, smooth sailing - that's why the British GP is the best."
Hamilton is now the closest he has been to Rosberg this season and that gap could narrow even further if stewards rule Mercedes erred in telling the German what to do.
Red Bull principal Christian Horner said the radio rules were "pretty clear" and questioned where Rosberg, who was booed by some in the crowd as he stepped onto the podium, would have finished had Mercedes not given him their advice.
But Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff said the governing FIA would have to decide.
"We know what is allowed on the rules. The gearbox was about to fail. We think we should be OK, but we'll wait," the Austrian told the BBC.
Rosberg, who had a stirring battle with Verstappen that involved each overtaking the other, said he was confident the team had acted within the rules.
Australian Daniel Ricciardo was fourth for Red Bull, 17.9 seconds behind his team mate, with Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen fifth.
Mexican Sergio Perez was sixth for Force India, with team principal Vijay Mallya able to attend a race for the first time this season, having previously had his passport withdrawn, with German team mate Nico Hulkenberg seventh.
Spaniard Carlos Sainz was eighth for Toro Rosso, with Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel ninth after being handed a five second penalty for forcing the Williams of Brazilian Felipe Massa off the track.

Serena creates history at Wimbledon
Serena Williams of the US lifts the championship trophy as she celebrates her win over Angelique Kerber of Germany in their ladies' singles final during the Wimbledon Championships at the All England Lawn Tennis Club, in London, Britain, on July 9.
Williams beat her German rival 7-5 6-3 to claim a seventh Wimbledon singles title and equal Steffi Graf's professional era record of 22 grand slam singles crowns on Saturday.
The 34-year-old American edged a high-quality final on a blustery Centre Court as she avenged a surprise loss to Kerber in the final of this year's Australian Open.
Fourth seed Kerber stuck to her guns in a fiercely-fought first set but wavered at 5-6 when a couple of unforced errors gave a fired-up Williams the chance to grab the opener, which she did on her second set point.
World number one Williams faced a moment of danger when Kerber earned a first break point at 3-3 in the second set but she responded by blasting down consecutive aces to stay ahead.
Under severe pressure throughout the contest Kerber crumbled in the next game, skewing a backhand wide to give Williams a 5-3 lead and the chance to serve for the title.
Williams was in no mood to prolong the contest and stormed 40-0 ahead, sealing victory with a volley on her first match point before collapsing backwards joyfully on to the Centre Court turf.-Reuters
