Portugal’s improbable triumph at Euro 2016 was the first major honour in its rich football history. Improbable in the sense that they were far from favourites going into the tournament and they were off the back of a relatively uninspiring qualification campaign that began with a shock defeat to Albania. Remarkably, in their seven games at the tournament they only managed to win one inside ninety minutes (Defeating Wales in the Semi-Final). The manner in which the Portuguese won Euro 2016 was a far cry from the flair and attacking football they were renowned for. Many purists bemoaned the Portuguese’s style and approach to games. Many deemed it unwatchable and anti-football.
