(Video) Eder summons the spirit of Ronaldo to win Euro 2016 for Portugal

Portugal must have feared the worst when Cristiano Ronaldo was carried off inside the opening half-hour of tonight’s Euro 2016 final against France.

However, substitute Eder has only gone and won it for Portugal with a fine long-range goal that was ‘so Ronaldo’.

Summoning the spirit of his injured captain, Eder shrugged off Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny before firing a low drive beyond Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.

Eder is still on the books at Swansea City, although he has not played for the Welsh side since January.

After failing to impress with the Swans, the 28-year-old was loaned out to Lille.

He scored six goals in 13 Ligue 1 games for Lille, possibly putting himself in the shop window.

If those six goals hadn’t done enough to resurrect Eder’s career, tonight’s Euros-winning worldie surely will.
