France has probably been the most consistent team of the tournament so far. They’ve won all but one game on their way to the finals, including defeating World Champions Germany 2-0 in a tense semifinal, which they were absolutely awesome in.
Portugal on the other hand were very slow starters. After squeezing through the group stages by the skin of their teeth with three tied games, they’ve been edging out teams by the narrowest of margins in the knockout stages. They needed a penalty shootout against against Poland, won only 1-0 against Croatia, and perhaps saved their best performance till last in the semifinals — knocking overachievers Wales 2-0.
Much of their success is built upon the brilliance of Cristiano, but he’s had an excellent supporting cast. Teen sensation Renato Sanches has been a revelation in midfield and powers the Portuguese team forward. In the heart of defense, Pepe has been a rock too, and even though he missed the semifinal through injury, he should be fit for this one.
France on the other hand have the tournament’s top scorer in Antoine Griezmann. After his brace against Germany in the semifinal, he moved on 6 goals in the tournament, which means he’s looking forward to winning Golden Boot for the competition.
