There have been some recent meetings between these nations the past two years. They had a home and home series in 2015 and 2014 in international friendly competition. Back last September it was France beating Portugal 1-0 on the road. Then at home in October 2014 it was France beating Portugal 2-1.
Portugal was winless after three group games as they played to a draw each time. They caught a break as Croatia defeated Spain and allowed and avoided the Spaniards in the Round of 16. The team was one of the four third place teams who advanced into the knockout round. In the quarterfinal round it was Portugal with a 1-1 tie with Poland that was decided by penalty kicks. Then it was Portugal facing Wales in the semifinals on July 6th. It was a scoreless 0-0 tie at the half and the game was very defensive as both teams kept many players in their back end. Cristiano Ronaldo had the game winner at the 50th minute with Nani scoring three minutes later for added insurance.
The host nation France was the winners of Group A with two wins and a draw. They earned victory in the Round of 16 to Ireland then beat Iceland in the quarterfinals. Then came the soccer power Germany in the semifinals and it was France earning the 2-0 victory. Antoine Griezmann provided all the scoring for the French in the victory. Griezmann scored in the 45th minute on a penalty shot then scored in the second half of play in the 72nd minute. France was winners of the 1984 and 2000 European Championships. They were 1998 World Cup champions as the host nation.
