After a series of matches between different zones, one team emerged as the winner. However, each match had its own essence in the way the players tackled their opponents. It exposed all the hard work and passion that they had put together to succeed in the competition.
In the end, there is only one spot. Yet, all gained appreciation for their commendable game play and enthusiastic performance on field. After a much hectic tournament, the footballers were extremely exhausted. It was as if, as soon as the team got eliminated from the EURO 2016, the players packed their bags and caught the earliest flight to the nearest destination to relax and rejuvenate.
