Portugal defeated France 1-0 to win their first ever EURO championship at Saint-Denis in Paris. Substitute Eder scored in extra-time to give Portugal a win at their first major international title despite losing captain and talisman Cristiano Ronaldo to injury. Eder scored the goal with 11 minutes of extra time left to stun France after the host team had dominated the match.
This was the first ever EURO final to end scoreless at the end of 90 minutes. Notably, this was the 15th UEFA European Championship, the quadrennial international men’s football championship of Europe organised by UEFA. It was held in France from 10 June to 10 July 2016. For the first time, the European Championship final tournament was being contested by 24 teams, having been expanded from the 16-team format used since 1996.
So let’s discuss some questions related to this post :
1. Name the team which has won the Euro 2016 football championship by defeating France 1-0?
2. The Euro 2016 football championship was held at which place?
