In a sea of red and green that covered the entire viewing area of the downtown Garden Square’s big screen outdoor television, fans of Portugal soccer saw their football heros triumph over France in extra time by a 1-0 score.

This time Peel Regional Police came prepared, closing off the main thoroughfare through the downtown core as thousands of fans spilled out of the square to celebrate the championship.

It was a close match throughout the full 90 minutes of regulation time – even with star Cristiano Ronaldo out of the game with a leg injury – but Portugal substitute Éder found the back of the net in extra time to give the Portuguese squad the lead, which they never relinquished.
