Just over four weeks ago, 24 teams arrived in France for the greatest European football competition in history.
Now just two remain.
Portugal take on hosts France in the Euro 2016 final in Saint-Denis on Sunday – and it’s guaranteed to be a cracker.
Didier Deschamps’ side are strong favourites as they look to complete a hat-trick of tournament victories on home soil.

For UK fans, the match will be broadcast live on BBC One and ITV1, with coverage starting from 7pm. Kick-off is at 8pm.
France didn’t catch the world alight during the tournament early stages. It took a spectacular and late goal from Dimitri Payet to give them victory over Romania in their first group game and they drew 0-0 with Switzerland on match day three.
But buoyed by the passionate home crowd, Les Bleus have slowly found their stride thanks to the likes of six-goal hitman Antoine Griezmann, midfield maestro Paul Pogba and the hard-working Olivier Giroud. The 2-0 win against Germany was their most emphatic yet. And dumping the World Champions out of the competition will give them a huge confidence boost ahead of the final against Portugal.
- Only Michel Platini (9 in 1984) has scored more goals at a single Euro finals than Antoine Griezmann has at Euro 2016 (6)
- France are the first nation to reach the Euro final twice as hosts (also in 1984)
- N’Golo Kanté has been booked three times in Euro 2016 – a joint record with Poland’s Bartosz Kapustka
- France are undefeated against Portugal in all friendlies/competitions in their last 10 meetings – a record stretching back to 1975
- They have won eight of those games – drawing two
Cristiano Ronaldo’s side have been underwhelming in the tournament. In fact their 2-0 win over Wales in the semi-finals was their FIRST victory in 90 minutes during the entire competition.
Ronaldo is obviously their key man – he inspired them to victory with a Man of the Match performance against the Welsh – and he’ll need to be spot-on again if Portugal are to come close to denting France’s hopes.
- Ronaldo equalled Michel Platini’s record of nine Euros goals. Five of them have been headers
- Portugal’s match against France will only be their second semi-final victory from seven major tournaments
- Cristiano Ronaldo is the first player to play in three Euro semi-finals (2004, 2012, 2016)
- Portgual have had the fourth-most shots on goal per game out of all 24 competing teams (24) behind England (20.5), Belgium (19) and Germany (18.8)
- Ronaldo himself has had the most shots per game out of any other player in the tournament (7.5)
