More than 120 minutes were enough for Portugal to lift their very first European Championship trophy as Fernando Santos’ men won against the UEFA Euro 2016 hosts France. Eder became the lucky man for Portugal as he scored the winning goal in 109th minute and thus he became the golden substitution made by Fernando Santos, who subbed off youngster Renato Sanches for striker of French Lille.
