The European Championships of surprises ended with a surprise, Euronews reports.


Portugal were crowned Champions, after beating France, the home team. While the Portuguese celebrate their first European title, the Blues cry for the first final lost on home turf.


The celebrations in Paris were probably heard on Portugal’s Algarve such was the joy and also the relief for this was a final which never lived up to its billing.


It drifted into extra time after France had hit the upright close to full time. The breakthrough eventually came in the 109th minute and out of nothing.


Eder got the ball a long way out, and struck a low shot from 25 yards into the corner of the net. The French keeper had not chance.
