With France still reeling from the November terror attacks in Paris, many football supporters believe this match is something the whole nation can now get behind.

“It’s going to bring us together. The country will be brought closer, I think,” said fan Ludovic Ladjyn.

“People will be less disparate and we need to win if only for that reason. It will calm everyone down and everyone will love each other, black, green, white, everyone. Like the World Cup in 1998.”

The excitement is matched in the Portuguese capital, where thousands of people will gather at a fanzone in downtown Lisbon later on Sunday to cheer on their team.

“Portugal will win, doesn’t matter if only by 1-0, they just have to play enough to win,” said fan Nuno Tomas in Lisbon.
