Euro 2016

Portugal defied odds and an injured Cristiano Ronaldo to stun the local hopefuls and win the European Championships 2016. They beat France 1-0 in Extra time at the Stade de France in the grand finale on July 10.

Much of the focus before the game was on how Ronaldo an Antoine Griezmann will impact the match. But it all threatened to boil down into an anti-climax as the Portuguese superstar was stretchered off after just 24 minutes following a strong tackle by Dimiti Payet. With no attacking outlet in the final third, Portugal resorted to defending deep and waiting for the right counter attack.

Euro 2016 will come to a grand finish at the Stade de France on Sunday, July 10 as France and Portugal vie for the title.

France were one of the pre-tournament favorites and with a talented squad, the hosts were expected to challenge for the title. They had to rely on the brilliance of playmaker Dimitri Payet in the group stages while it was Antoine Griezmann who led them in the knockouts. In fact, the Atletico Madrid forward is the top scorer of the tournament with five goals. And the best thing for France is that their midfield dynamo Paul Pogba is slowly coming into good form after a difficult start. And with Hugo Lloris manning the goal admirably, France look a complete side capable enough of lifting the title.

Euro 2016

Antoine Griezmann was again the star of the show as hosts France marched into the finals of Euro 2016 after beating Germany 2-0.

Germany controlled the proceedings for longer spells of the game but were found wanting in the final third. Just when it looked like it would finish goal less at half-time, Bastian Schweinsteiger was adjudged to have handled the ball in the penalty area. Griezmann converted it coolly to give France the lead. He doubled it after the interval with a neat finish into the empty net. The Germans tried their best to get back into the game and threw many bodies up front but were poor with their finishing. France have their captain Hugo Lloris to thank for the margin as he stopped Germany many times with acrobatic saves.

Euro 2016

Portugal became the first finalist of Euros 2016 when they defeated Wales 2-0 in the semi-finals. The match was closer as expected but Cristiano Ronaldo outshone his Real Madrid compatriot Gareth Bale to edge closer to assuaging the pain of 2004 Euros final loss to Greece.

It was always touted to be Ronaldo versus Bale but it was the Seleccao star who did the star turn. After an eventful first half where both sides were equally guilty of passing their chances to take lead, Ronaldo scored a bullet header in the 50th minute to put Portugal ahead. The goal was his ninth in European Championships equaling Michel Platini’s record.

Euro 2016 will witness one of the biggest matches of the tournament when hosts France take on World Champions Germany for a place in the finals. This semi-finals clash will be played at the Stade Velodrome on Thursday, July 7.

France are undoubtedly one of the best teams in this tournament having come through to the last four without much fuss. They were expected to be stretched by Iceland in the quarterfinals but the giant killers were thrashed 5-2 by the hosts. The score line is a just indication of how rampant the French were. Even the much maligned striker Olivier Giroud found the game to his liking by scoring a brace and setting up one. This is their best display in the tournament so far where before the Iceland match they managed to get past teams riding on the brilliance of Dimitri Payet or Antonio Griezmann.

Wales will look to continue their dream run in Euro 2016 when they clash with Portugal in the semi-finals. There’s a temptation to bill this as Gareth Bale versus Cristiano Ronaldo clash but this is much more than that. This match will be played at the Parc Olympique Lyonnais on Wednesday, July 6 with the winner moving into the grand finals.

Portugal have been one of the underwhelming sides that has made this far in the tournament. They are yet to win a match in Euro 2016 in regular time. With three draws in the group stage followed by some boring displays against Croatia and Poland, this side is a far cry from being consistent or enterprising. With Ronaldo in no mood to translate his club form to national colors, Portugal is struggling for influence in the final third. But for the heroics of Ricardo Quaresma and the teenager Renato Sanches, this side wouldn’t have come this far. They seem to have developed a knack of performing when discounted which makes them dangerous.
