Euro 2016: Portugal crowned champions after Cristiano Ronaldo goes off injured

Stade de France, Paris  Portugal gatecrashed France’s Euro 2016 party to win the European Championship for the first time in its history – and all this without leading star Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Real Madrid forward had been forced out of the game with a knee injury in the first half, but Portugal regrouped and thanks to some heroic goalkeeping from Rui Patricio took the game into extra time before Eder struck with 11 minutes to go.
