“I went unsightly Register Now it is a beautiful swan.”
Eder was not even supposed to be playing in the game.
The commander of Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo is not suffering from a knee injury and
carried out on a stretcher in tears, and perhaps Eder remained on the bench.
But in the 109th minute of the final, with a penalty shootout looming,
he took the ball about 30 yards from goal,
and he went French defender Laurent Koscielny last
and hit a fierce shot and goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.
