Euro 2016 Final

After a great tournament we finally know which two teams will face each other in the final of Euro 2016, Portugal and France. It isn’t too much of a surprise that France made the final, however Portugal weren’t expected to get there.

Route to the final…

Portugal

Group Stages

Portugal 1 – 1 Iceland

Christiano Ronaldo complained about the way Iceland played, but its fair to say Portugal did not impress in this game.

Portugal 0 – 0 Austria

Another underwhelming performance say Portugal scrape another draw.

Hungary 3 – 3 Portugal

In one of the games of the tournament, Portugal kept going behind, but managed to draw level each time. There were some amazing goals in this game.

Round of Last 16

Croatia 0 – 1 Portugal

Croatia were tipped to go far after beating Spain in the group stages. However they just couldn’t score against Portugal. The match went to extra time before Quaresma scored just before the end.

Quarter Final

Poland 1 – 1 Portugal (Portugal won 5 – 3 on penalties)

Another underwhelming performance by Portugal saw them go through to the semi finals on penalties

Semi Final

Portugal 2 – 0 Wales

Wales were missing a few of their key players through suspension, and rarely worried the Portuguese defence.

France

Group Stages

France 2 – 1 Romania

After a relatively boring first half, the game came to life in the second, seeing Payet score one of the goals on the tournament to seal victory in the last minute.

France 2 – 0 Albania

This match looked to be heading to a nil nil draw until 2 late goals snatched victory for France.

Switzerland 0 – 0 France

France were already through to the last 16 by this point.

Round of Last 16

France 2 – 0 Rep of Ireland

After going behind early on, France came out in the second half and turned this match around. Rep of Ireland were not helped by receiving red card half way through the second half

Quarter Final

France 5 – 2 Iceland

Iceland had done amazingly well to get this far. However France were just too strong on this occasion

Semi Final

France 2 – 0 Germany

After failing to beat Germany in a major tournament since 1958, France finally did it, to book their place in the final!

Prediction

We predict a close encounter with both teams scoring. However we believe France will be too strong for Portugal and will therefore win 3-1.
