A stunning 25-yard strike from Eder gave Portugal victory over France in extra time of the Euro 2016 final.

The Lille striker’s first goal in a competitive international match sank home hopes of a third Euro championship crown.

Portugal closed ranks after Ronaldo was forced out with a knee injury in the first half at the Stade de France. Pierre-Andre Gignac almost won the match for France with one of the last kicks of the game in normal time but his effort came off the post.

The Portuguese defence had been tireless and Rui Patricio made a string of stunning saves to ensure the 90 minutes ended goalless.

But the Portuguese had offered little upfront until substitute Eder struck from distance to stun the home support.
