Twelve years after losing to Greece on their home soil in their last final appearance, it was Portugal’s turn to spoil the host nation’s party. And they achieved it by winning only one of their seven games at Euro 2016.
Everyone who watched Euro 2016 Final on Sunday between Portugal and France would totally agree that France deserves to win but luck was not on their side.
Portugal’s team didn’t put so much effort like Team France did but yet they were crowned the Champion.
Portugal starts of the campaign poorly but yet they ended well. While France started the campaign very well but yet they lost to the best loser from group stage.
All eyes were on Christiano Ronaldo but unfortunately for him he was carried out off the pitch. The match continued while France’s team kept on impressing and Portugal’s team on the other hand were just playing along defending perfectly. Just as the final looked destined for a penalty shootout, all thanks to a goal in extra time from substitute Eder (God sent man to rescue the struggling Portugal) cut through the French defense and struck a low shot from 25 meters (yards) passed goalkeeper Hugo Lloris in the 109th minute at the Stade de France. Securing their country’s first football title.
This is where am actually going:
So many people write off Portugal as been the Champion due to their previous performances in this France Euro 2016(See people will look down on you due to your background status and they will automatically write you off but keep moving and avoid distractions you will get there).
Remember Portuguese team were determined, Focused and they never lost their focus. They remained committed and united. They did not let their performance at the group stage determine their end. They kept the faith and believe and worked as a team.
Christian Ronaldo was Portugal god but he was stopped half way and the team achieved the goal without him. He even turned out to be the assistance coach and kept encouraging the team (You don’t necessarily have to look up to anyone to succeed but put in all your possible best to achieve success and trust in God. Even the person you looked up to might fail you and end up being the one motivating you to success)
Portugal’s team did not look at how they started but looked ahead thereby achieving their aims “France Euro 2016 Champion” (Don’t be discouraged because of your background, look ahead and see beyond your present state and you shall be the CHAMPION.
