France beat Portugal way back in 2006 when Cristiano was just another player whose prospect looked promising. Kylian Mbappe was a 6 year old and it was Zinedine Zidane at France and Luis Figo at Portugal who were pulling the strings. It was Zidane’s 33rd minute penalty which sunk the Portuguese.
Back in 2016 Cristiano carried his country to the Final but got injured after a blow from Payet and was subbed off. It was Eder who scored in extra time to Crown Portugal as the Euro Champions.
Out of 5 fixtures Portugal have won just 1 but that being a final.
