After so many near-misses, Portugal finally holds an international trophy, and the country is determined to enjoy the moment, welcoming the victorious Euro 2016 team back to Lisbon in spectacular fashion.

Eder’s extra-time strike handed Portugal a 1-0 win over France in Paris on Sunday, after the host nation had missed a host of chances to break the deadlock.

And the wild and emotional celebrations from the Portugal players and staff that greeted the final whistle continued as they arrived back in the Portuguese capital.

The team landed at Lisbon’s Portela Airport and received something of a wet welcome as green and red water cannons were fired over their plane.

Fernando Santos’ men then boarded open top buses and made their way into the city, where the squad was greeted by hordes of joyous fans who had packed the streets for a glimpse of the Henri Delaunay Trophy.
