From a moth invasion in the stadium pre-match, to Cristiano Ronaldo’s early injury and a stunning late goal for Portugal, it was a bonkers night of football in Paris! 

Ronaldo was stretchered off in tears in the first half but an extra-time goal by Eder saw Portugal beat hosts France 1-0 in Sunday’s Euro 2016 final to win their first major tournament.

The victim of a heavy challenge by Dimitri Payet, Ronaldo went off in the first half. He was inconsolable as he handed over the arm-band to Nani. 

Twitter exploded as commiserations poured in for the Real Madrid superstar.

The moth on Ronaldo’s face became an internet sensation as RonaldosMoth started trending!

But he returned to the touchline to see Lille striker Eder settle the game with a low 25-yard strike at Stade de France.

And twelve years after losing 1-0 to Greece as hosts of Euro 2004, Portugal inflicted the same fate on France, who were seeking a cathartic victory eight months on from the Paris attacks that left 130 people dead. 

And once Eder’s stunning goal gave them a 1-0 win, the celebrations began in style!

And this is the tweet that says it all:

It was not necessarily a great night of football, but it’ll go down as one of the most crazy nights in Euro history!
