It would be a narrow-minded person that does not bode the host nation well in the final, nor get caught up in the wave of emotion that will envelop the stadium the moment ‘Le Marseillaise’ is belted out.

Famously sung below the stadium in November after French football fans were evacuated as terrorists carried out attacks on their beautiful capital, expect a rousing reception for Les Blues as they take to the field against Ronaldo’s Portugal.

The French national side won through to the final after beating world champions Germany 2-0 on Friday morning, with Antoine Griezmannscoring both goals.

Griezmann now tops the Golden Boot competition with six goals and we believe he will add another to his tally in a tough final game.

Hard game to callIt is a difficult game tojudgethough, as just as you thought Portugal were done and dusted they beat Wales for their first win of the tournament in normal time.

Now they face not just the French football team on the pitch, but the whole French nation plus the whole of Europe.

Europeunitesfor one nightEurope will unite (including the British, for one final time) as the continent gets behind the French.

This does not bode well for the Portuguese but then football is a funny old game.

When Germany came up against Italy in the quarter-finals they had never beaten them in a major tournament. When France came up against Germany in the semi-finals they had never beaten them in a major tournament.

Could it be possible? We need to check the history books.

French favouritesFrance were most pundits’ favourites for the tournament and they have improved as the competition progressed.

Portugal seems to have been half asleep as they crept a step closer to Paris, yet somehow they have achieved a shot at glory.

In Ronaldo they have arguably the best player in the world as their talisman and hehasrepeatedly let it be known that he wants to go down as one of the greatest players ever to grace the game; this is his chance.

There are no major injuries on either side that we are aware of at this stage, although William Carvalho will be back from suspension and could slot back into Portugal’s centre midfield at Danilo’s expense and Pepe should recover from a thigh injury in time for Sunday.

This has the potential to be one of the all-time great European finals, with the depth of quality on both sides abundant, but it could also be an anti-climatic bore draw that the Portuguese win on bloody penalties.

Either way, sleep in your slippers and pyjamas, set that alarm for 5 am and watch Europe embrace its most romantic city and share in its joy as the Eiffel Tower is lit up in the colour of the tricolor.

Liberté, égalité and fraternité.

Vive le France!
