This one’s for all the marbles.

France is looking for its third Euro title in front of the home fans outside Paris, while Portugal continues to search for its first in a long string of finals disappointments.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Antoine Griezmann face off as featured attackers for their side. For France, Griezmann is supported by Moussa Sissoko, with Didier Deschamps choosing to retain the winger in place of N’Golo Kante, who is left on the bench for the second straight match following his suspension. Deschamps has also opted to leave in Samuel Umtiti in defense for the third straight game, with Adil Rami having a seat on the bench since his quarterfinal suspension.


Portugal supports its talisman with Nani alongside him, plus the addition of William Carvalho who comes back into the midfield after missing the semis with suspension, replacing Danilo. In addition, Pepe makes a return to the back line after missing the semis due to injury. Otherwise, the Portugal lineup is unchanged from the win over Wales.


France: Lloris, Sagna, Koscielny, Umtiti, Evra, Matuidi, Pogba, Sissoko, Griezmann, Payet, Giroud.

Portugal: Rui Patricio, Cedric, Pepe, Fonte, Guerreiro, Carvalho, Silva, Sanches, J. Mario, Nani, Ronaldo.
