Portugal showed their strengths on EURO 2016 in the Semi-finals and beat Wales 2-0, but their overall performance on this tournament wasn’t amazing, but who cares!? They reached the final and want to make another step forward and become the champions of Europe for the first time. Portugal have already had a chance to win this competition in 2014, when they were hosts, but Greece beat them in the final. This time they face against France in the final of
EURO 2016
 and it will be the big test for Cristiano Ronaldo and their teammates. Portugal have never won this tournament and they will be fully motivated to lift the trophy.

France reached the final after they beat Germany 2-0 in the Semis and they believe that can make another step forward and win EURO 2016. In the semi-finals they weren’t impressive, but the penalty at the end of the first half-time helped them a lot.France have won last ten meetings against Portugal, dating back to 1975 and without any doubt they are favorites to win this tournament. France have already won European championship 1984 when they were hosts and they hope that can repeat that success. “Portugal have a lot of quality and it’s no accident they’re there. Like us, they were criticised at the start of the competition. Like us they are now in the final.” – said Didier Deschamps, France coach.
