Portugal's players are waking up on Monday morning as European Champions after their 1-0 win over France in the Euro 2016 Final.

An Eder goal, in the second half of extra-time was enough to give the second-time finalists the win on front of a partisan Parisian crowd. It is the second time the hosts have lost the European Championship Final. Portugal were the first team to lose a final, as hosts, in 2004. 

After the win, the Portuguese squad, led by captain Cristiano Ronaldo took to social media to bask in the glory of becoming European Champions.
