I don't think Portugal have been a good team, they rely on random individual moments, and they've had good fortune throughout the tournament, but they do all put in a shift and have good battling qualities. France didn't do enough as the game went on, bar a couple of moments, and faded in extra time. Eventually got punished.

Not a great tournament in my opinion. You expect cautious football but this has been to the extreme in some games. Very few teams who have shown belief and gone for it in games, and the football played hasn't been fantastic.

Nothing against Portugal but they feel like a fitting victor for such a poor tournament.

The whole thing was disappointing.

It might have been because Ireland were in it but I enjoyed the tournament. We haven't really had a good/entertaining tournament since 2008 though. Too much risk free football nowadays.
