Published on 11/07/2016
Last night Portugal played France in the Euro 2016 finals. Despite losing Ronaldo to a knee injury in the first 25 minutes of the game, Portugal was crowned the champions of European football with a 1-0 win against their host’s France. Ronaldo was overwhelmed with emotion and collapsed in tears a total of 18 times during the match, with Eder scoring the winning goal the tears were then replaced with celebrations for the Portuguese win.
Cristiano Ronaldo has had a number of goal celebrations during his international career with a total of 61 goals under his belt. In the Euro 2016 semi-finals, Ronaldo scored in the 44th minute of the game, destroying the Welsh team’s hope of being in with the chance of winning. Ronaldo was joined by his teammates to celebrate the glorious goal.
Griezmann’s scored a total of six goals during the Euro 2016 tournament giving him the title of the top scorer. Each of his six goals was accompanied by his quirky celebratory dance which he revealed was inspired by a dance he saw in Drakes ‘Hotline Bling’.
The latest dance craze called ‘the Dab’ was Pogba’s choice of celebratory dance. After scoring the second goal in the first half of the game against Iceland Pogba bound down the pitch throwing out multiple dabs in true Pogba style.
In the opening match where France played against Romania, it looked as though the match was set to end in a draw. In the 89th minute French playmaker Dimitri Payet scored a late goal giving France a dramatic 2-1 win.
Sturridge saved the day for England by scoring against Wales in the 92nd minute, giving England their only victory of the tournament. The late winner sparked huge celebrations from the entire England team including assistant manager Gary Neville.
