Cristiano Ronaldo, 31, and the Portugal team made it to the final game, and he was out for a win. There’s nothing quite like a soccer game with Cristiano. However, he just wasn’t meant to play in the Euro final. In the early stages of the game, he was taken off the field in a stretcher after suffering a knee injury!
Thankfully, his team played their hearts out. With 12 minutes to go, Éder hit a 30-yard shot to take Portugal up 1-0 against France. France never even got a goal!
Despite rumors that Cristiano might retire after the Euro 2016 final, Portugal’s manager assured fans that that won’t be happening. “He’ll play for another six, seven, 10 years,” Fernando Santos said, according to ESPN. “I don’t know. But tomorrow won’t be his final match.”
Both France and Portugal’s teams played so well over the course of Euro 2016. In the semi-finals, Portugal beat Wales 2-0, while France beat Germany 2-0. Portugal continued their winning streak in the Euro final. Congrats again!
