Ronaldo's Portugal triumphed over his club teammate Bale's country Wales in a game that was decided via two goals inspired by the Portuguese no. 7.
In the end, Portugal was the team who won it all. Pundits went mad, neutrals went mad, but they won't care. They will party deep into the night.

EURO 2016 has already served us some surprises (and quite a bit of football) so far. The thunderous strike of Payet and Modric's equally as well hit volley are the highlights of the festival so far. And there are already some pretty big signs of how the rest of the tournament is going to go.
France thrashed Iceland 5-2 and moved on to face the World champions Germany in the semi-finals of Euro 2016.
