120′ Two minutes added on

109′ GOAL!!! EDER SCORES FOR PORTUGAL! Eder takes a right footed shot from distance and it has gone into the corner!

108′ CROSSBAR! Raphael with a lovely left footed free kick and it smacks the crossbar!

107′ Koscielny (France) is booked

105′ Half time in extra time, still no goals

103′ CLOSE! Eder’s header is parried by Lloris after the Portugal player leaped highest

98′ Coman’s breathtaking run is brought to an end with a foul by William Carvalho who gets booked

97′ Matuidi is booked for France

95′ Raphael Guerreiro (Portugal) is booked.

95′ When the golden goals rule existed

FULL TIME: No goals after 90 minutes. We’re going into extra time once again for a Portugal game

91′ POST!! Gignac hits the woodwork for France! Frenchman using his body to good effect and then turning his defender to shoot past Rui Patricio but for the post

83′ SAVE! Rui Patricio with a big save to deny a Sissoko’s effort from distance

82′ That’s a lovely sight

81′ Mick Jagger is at the final

80′ CLOSE! Nani tests Lloris and then Quaresma with a bicycle kick to bring out another save from the French keeper

77′ France change: Giroud goes off and Gignac comes on

Portugal change: Renato Sanches goes off and Eder comes on

77′ How crucial has Coman been for France since he’s come on

75′ CLOSE! Giroud goes close! Good from France and even better from Rui Patrício. Coman finds the striker left of central in the area and his shot across goal needs a fine stop from the Portugal goalkeeper

66′ Portugal change: João Moutinho (in) – Adrien Silva (out)

65′ CLOSE! Griezmann’s glancing header is just wide of the target. Coman with a precise cross from the left and Griezmann is six metres out and sends his header over. That was big chance – best of this game

62′ Joao Mario is booked for a late challenge

57′ France change: Coman comes on for Payet. That’s a big change!

53′ We have the obligatory big game pitch invader and four officials taking him off

46′ France kick the second half off

# Ronaldo with a great gesture

HALF TIME: Portugal 0-0 France. France have offered most with Sissoko, Griezmann; Ronaldo subbed off

46′ No idea what any of those words mean but we’re guessing that this is bad for Ronaldo and his club Real Madrid for the pre-season

45′ Two minutes added on

44′ Just a minute in this half to go and our topic point from first 45 is Ronaldo injury. Sissoko gone closest so far in either of the two sides

35′ In Paris, police have been forced to fire tear gas as fans forcibly tried to enter the fan zone at the foot of Eiffel Tower

34′ Cedric is booked

33′ CLOSE! Sissoko with a great turn inside the box to create space for himself and shoots but it is parried by Rui Patricio

29′ Sissoko meanwhile brings focus back on the pitch. Super run down the right skipping past couple of Portugal players on the way

27′ Bruno Alves has gone down the tunnel to console a clearly emotional Ronaldo. Meanwhile will this spur Portugal on?

25′ Ronaldo goes off on the stretcher and on comes Quaresma. Nani has the captain’s armband

23′ Ronaldo throws the captain’s armband on the turf, is down and ready to be subbed off!

22′ Ronaldo is back on but doesn’t look good enough. Not really going full motor.

17′ Ronaldo looks to be in tears as he goes off the pitch to have his knee looked at by more Portugal physios. This can be huge for this game and for Portugal’s players

16′ Ronaldo is down and looks to be in distress. Has had multiple knocks so far. Needs an ice bag

9′ CLOSE! Griezmann header is tipped over by Rui Patricio. Ball chipped into the box and the French striker takes it first time towards goal and has his effort saved

7′ Griezmann’s effort goes wide. France with some good movement and play

4′ Tennis player Tsonga is supporting his native France. As you would expect him to

3′ This is a gorgeous sight

1′ Nani gets the game going

# Anthems have been sung

# Xavi brings on the trophy on the pitch.

# So many moths in the air in Paris.
