Sask. Portuguese fans celebrate country's first soccer title
Portugal stuns host nation France with extra time winner
Portuguese fans celebrated while French fans wondered what went wrong at the UEFA European final on Sunday.
Over at The Lobby Public House in Regina, Jeff and Jason Silva stood and watched as Portugal's captain and international superstar Cristiano Ronaldo was stretchered off in the first half with an apparent knee injury.
The Silva brothers erupted at the pub and Eder's goal stood as the game winner.
Jeff told CBC he was in Portugal in 2004 when they hosted the tournament. It was also the last time Portugal was in the final.
Kamil Rogowski has been following France throughout the tournament and he said the loss in the final came as a shock.
"I was surprised that Portugal won given the fact that they started off the tournament so badly, and they somehow managed to get through to the final," he said. "I'm shocked it ended the way it did."
