BREAKING NEWS: Eder stuns France as Portugal win Euro 2016 without Ronaldo

Portugal beat France 1-0 after extra-time to win Euro 2016 in their opponent's national stadium.

Eder was Portugal's unlikely hero as his extra-time goal sealed a first major international honour for his country at the expense of Euro 2016 hosts France.

France dominated for much of the game, against a Portugal side shorn of talismanic captain Cristiano Ronaldo after he sustained a knee injury in the first half.

Tournament top scorer Antoine Griezmann headed over before substitute Andre-Pierre Gignac hit the post in stoppage time.

And Eder stepped up in the second period of extra time, holding off Laurent Koscielny before finding the bottom corner from 25 yards.

The Portuguese defence had been tireless and Rui Patricio made a string of stunning saves to ensure the 90 minutes ended goalless.

But the Portuguese had offered little upfront until substitute Eder struck from distance to stun the home support.
