Huge congratulations to Portugal! They were the underdogs, they were playing away at France, and their star player, Cristiano Ronaldo, went down with an injury in the first half. I think it is safe to say, we were all quite shocked to see France lose. The entire game was a battle and eventually went to overtime where Eder scored his first international goal for Portugal. After losing in two finals, this was a huge win for Portugal as it was their first big title.
The 2016 Wimbledon was the 130th edition of the championships held in London, UK from late June to early July. Serena Williams dominated the women’s bracket and went on to win her 22nd major singles title. The men’s, on the other hand, got a lot more interesting after favorites, Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer, both lost before reaching the finals. Andy Murray ended up winning the title and maintaining his ranking as the 2nd best tennis player.
Stay tuned for more top tens!
