For Cristiano Ronaldo, France is favorite tonight in the final of the Euro 2016, but the Portuguese believes it.
The countdown is started. Tonight, the team of France has an appointment with its history for its third final of the Euro, facing the Portugal of Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portuguese gave an interview for UEFA in which he evokes this final coming: “This is something I have always dreamed of.” It would be a great success to win something with PortugaL. I cross my fingers because I believe, my teammates believe, all of Portugal believes in it, and the Portuguese community that lives in France believes in it. Cristiano, the model captain evoked the painful memory for the Portuguese of the Euro 2004 and the defeat at home in the finals against Greece: “It’s unique, a feeling of happiness because I wanted to go to the finals once again.” My last time was in 2004. Today I will have the chance to play a second final with Portugal.
CR7, who never scored against France (as long as it lasts), also spoke of the tricolors: “We know that we face a great team, a great selection but it is a final and everything is possible.” For him, France remains a favorite “because she plays at home, and that’s a great advantage.” The whole country will support them, but it is a final and we will see what happens. We’ll be ready, and it won’t be easy to fight. Since the tournament started, no one has beaten us, and I hope France will not. If he wins tonight with Portugal, Cristiano will take a big step towards the Golden Ball. His rival Messi does not believe it, and instead puts a play on the France of Antoine Griezmann. # TeamMessi Do you think France is favorite?
