ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Thousands of fans greeted Euro 2016 champions Portugal as they landed in Lisbon on Monday (July 11), chanting the name of goal hero Eder, whose extra-time screamer sealed the 1-0 victory over France. After traveling in a plane named after the late striker Eusebio, coach Fernando Santos and captain Cristiano Ronaldo were greeted by rapturous applause from the 5,000-strong crowd as they lifted the country's first major trophy aloft. They were due to meet President Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, who said he would honour them with an award for distinguished acts of public service. The team will parade the trophy in the streets of Lisbon before addressing delirious supporters at the fanzone in the capital after the country erupted into noisy jubilation late on Sunday (July 10). Former Portugal coach Luiz Felipe Scolari, who lost to Greece in the 2004 final hosted by Portugal, showered praise on the players.
