Many people say Pepe was the best player on the pitch and he had a great game. But of the 4 CB. He did by far the worst defending in the match when gignac with nowhere to go turns him inside out and hits the post. Had that gone in....Pepe would have been slaughtered. Just shows you with defenders, we pay only attention when their bad defending leads to goal. That was so bad

Portugal might've gotten it easy this whole tournament, but they deserved a major title for what they've done in the past. They've always lost unfairly/cruelly near the end. 66, 84, 2000, 2004, 2006, 2012...

I'm not Portuguese, but they are the European team I support since just right before Euro 2004. I'm very happy they finally got to make up for 2004 &#55357;&#56877;❤️

When (sh)Italy wins via defensive destruction football = ZOMG le tactics :eek::thumbsup:

When Portugal wins via similar boring defensive shit = "boring" :mad: "worse champions ever" :cry:

Fuckin haters have the nerve to compare this Portugal to fuckin Greece. :fp:
Greece!!! :fp: Greece was the poster boy for the shittiest most vanilla destruction football of all time. It was a pure team effort with almost no standout players whatsoever.

At least with Portugal, you got a bit of flair and skills from Nani, RickyQ and CR7. Also you got to see Pepe in monster form!

The things is....many of the Portugal haters are also Messi fans, currently drowning in a Dead Sea of salt at the fact that CR7 wins his first major international trophy right after their Lord and savior retires......without directly contributing shit either :lol:
Then CR7 being the glorious arrogant narcissistic cunt he is, strips off his shirt to make all the haters count his beautifully sculpted abs (no homo) :lol::lol::lol:

Seriously, you could not make this shit up :D

First time in ages that I'm happy for Portugal. This team is different in spirit and attitude from their usual teams. Much less whining, entitlement, and general annoyance.

Even Nani the erstwhile exhibit A for an annoying footballer looks a different professional team man now.

Good job Portugal. Particularly the managers.

It certainly is racist, when only 3 out of the 23 players called up by France in the Euros were born in another country besides France - Evra, Mandanda, and Umtiti. Based also on simply skin color, only 3 out of 12 black players were born outside France. That makes 20 players born in France, yet all 23 of them being naturalized Frenchman.

It also doesn't matter whether or not their family is from France, either. Both sides of my family only became American the better part of a hundred years ago. Can I not then be considered American? Do I have to be considered half German and half Irish? Nope. I'm American, just like all 23 of those French players are French.

It's just a meme to downplay the French squad because they're no 'original' (what's the correct term?) French people. It's a backwards way of thinking because it's 2016. People immigrate, there are many European teams that have players from different roots, not just France. But don't take the meme that seriously, it's not racist just silly. Btw it said African, not a black team. Don't forget about Rami ;)

9 out of Portugal's 23 man Euro squad was made up by players not born in Portugal. Gee, I wonder why no one has brought this fact up.

Years and years have gone by since France became a fairly well integrated country and this discussion has to happen here in 2016. Stop being silly, nohope.
