With a wonder goal from striker Eder, Portugal won its first European championship on Sunday, defeating host, France 1-0 win at the Stade de France.

Portugal played a very defensive game until the second half of extra-time when substitute Eder proved the match-winner.

The Guinea Bussau born striker dribbled past inside past two French defenders before unleashing his right boot past Hugo Lloris, to the sorrow of the home crowd.

Cristiano Ronaldo who was stretchered off midway through the first-half and thus, could not play the  big role expected of him in the final.

Portugal was in the same position as France 12 years ago when they were defeated in front of their cheering fans by Greece in Euro 2004.
