Portugal’s Euro 2016-winning coach Fernando Santos has penned a new deal to take charge until the next European Championship.

The 61-year-old, who replaced Paulo Bento in 2014, steered his team past Croatia, Poland and Wales before stunning the hosts France in the showpiece match thanks to a late strike by Swansea City forward Eder.

Santos’ new contract will allow him the chance to defend la Seleção’s European crown in four years time, while also setting his sights on conquering the World Cup in Russia in 2018.
