Portugal stunned everyone by beating the host team France 1-0 with an extra-time goal.
This disappointed Frenchman was one of many fans getting emotional on the street after the match – but a little Portuguese supporter stepped up to see if he was OK. And they hugged each other.
Tens of thousands of screaming supporters flooded the streets to celebrate Portugal’s 1-0 victory — the country’s first international title delivered even as superstar Cristiano Ronaldo watched injured from the touchline.

“Words fail me. We deserved it. We finally silenced the French and everyone who spoke ill of us. We proved that we are stronger,” said 22-year-old Ruben Sardinha, a Portuguese flag tied around his neck.
But still, the victory was bittersweet for some who would have liked to see the captain finish the tournament on a higher note.
