All tried – players and coach’s headquarters. Portugal waited so long for this title. Just fantastically! My congratulations to all of us!
I waited for the moment from the very first day in the national team. Ever since Fernando Santos has announced me in team. He knew what I was good and fit well for the team. He believed in me, and I worked hard, trying to introduce as much as possible advantages. I am very glad to our achievement.
Cristiano told that I could score a victorious goal. The same was said by the others. It gave me forces and energy. The goal has turned out very important.
I worked much on it. We put our drive and value for that success. We worked really hard from the very beginning of EURO 2016 . Portuguese have deserved these emotions”, – Eder said.
