Portugal: Road to EURO 2016 glory

Portugal was one of the six top-seeded sides in the summer European Championships. Headlining Group F that also consisted of Iceland, Austria and Hungary, Cristiano Ronaldo and Co. were expected to top the group with ease. But things didn’t go to plan as a disastrous, and almost fatal, group stage nearly killed Portugal’s dream. However, as philosophical as it may sound, difficult roads lead to beautiful destinations as Portugal picked up its game and broke its trophy duck to win its first ever international tournament by beating host France 1-0 in a tense, emotionally-charged final.
