After topsy turvy results in Wimbledon Tennis wherein top seeded Novak was ousted in the second round, the second biggest upset was witnessed in football Euro Cup when Portugal beat France (1-0) in France’s home ground. This was by no means an ordinary feat by Portuguese as they were underdog at the beginning of the tournament. More so, within half an hour, their only internationally famed star and Captain, Ronaldo was forced to leave the game due injury by bad tackling. After that moment French players were all offensive as they were sensing the victory. But excellent defense from Pepe, Jose Fonte and Rui Patricio took the game to extra time without a goal being scored. In the second leg of extra time, Eder got a chance and shot a beautiful kick in between the French defense which beat the goalkeeper as well.
Portugal had never won the Henri Delaunay Trophy before. So it is quite a big achievement and justifies their jubilation.
