Here we are finally. Twenty four teams started the journey on the 10th of June. Twenty two fell along the way and we have the last two teams in Portugal and France making it to the Final. Based on performances, Portugal don’t deserve to be in the final having won just one of their matches in normal time. Funny they qualified as one of the group stage’s third placed teams. That’s the beauty of football and that’s why we love the beautiful game.
France on the other hand deserved to be here after knocking out tournament’s favourite – Germany in the semi final. Two defensive errors duly taken by the dangerous Antoine Griezmann took them back to Paris.
The final won’t be an easy task judging by what we’ve seen so far and it’s on that note that I give my prediction for the final of the 2016 European Championship.
Portugal – France
Portugal have defied all the odds to get here, underrate them at your own peril, but I decided to go down Memory Lane and I discovered that France usually win anytime to host an major competition, I think history will continue.
Prediction: Portugal 1 – 2 France
