Legendary Moments: Sir Alex on 1999 triumph

He appeared close to tears again six weeks ago following Atletico Madrid's Champions League final defeat by Real Madrid, in which he blasted a second-half penalty against the bar. He atoned, partially, in the penalty shootout, but Ronaldo had the last laugh, tucking away the fifth and final spot-kick to secure his third European title. It is Griezmann, however, who has captured imaginations at the Euro and he provided another exhibition of his talents with a brace in the semi-final win over Germany.

He can score and he can help others score. Disappointing in France's opening win over Romania, Griezmann came off the bench to head in a crucial late goal in the defeat of Albania. But having started the tournament on the right flank, it was only after being moved behind Olivier Giroud at half-time of the last 16 clash with the Republic of Ireland that his tournament sprang to life. He scored twice in the second half, found the net again in the last 16 defeat of Iceland and downed Germany almost single-handedly in Marseille on Thursday.

Griezmann is the first player to score six goals at a Euro since Platini, who netted nine times when France triumphed as hosts of the tournament. Ronaldo's goal against Wales saw him equal Platini's record of nine goals at Euro finals, but whereas it took the Frenchman one tournament to set his mark, it has taken the Portugal captain four to equal it. He was widely ridiculed for accusing Iceland — population 3,30, — of having a "small mentality" after the draw between the teams and then slammed a penalty against the post as Portugal drew with Austria.

But he scored twice in the draw with Hungary that secured Portugal's last 16 place and after two games without a goal, he settled the semi-final against Wales with a goal and an assist for Nani. With his great rival Lionel Messi's Argentina career up in the air — the Barcelona star announced his international retirement following a defeat on penalties by Chile in the Copa America final — Ronaldo has an extra incentive to win on Sunday.

Lead Portugal to a first major title, and a fourth Ballon d'Or — the prize he covets above almost all others — would swim tantalisingly into view. Ronaldo has been at the summit for seven or eight years. If there's an anti-Ronaldo plan, no-one's found it—Didier Deschamps, France coach. Eight of those nine wins were decided by a single goal. He has failed to score any. All nine of his goals at the European Championships have been scored from inside the box.
