In the pantheon. Last night, Portugal found its new hero. And for once, it was not Cristiano Ronaldo, but rather Diogo Costa. The last bastion of the Portuguese selection was brilliant in the 8th final of the Euro against Slovenia. First by winning a terribly important duel in extra time against the striker Benjamin Sesko, then during a historic penalty shootout where he managed to deflect the first three attempts of the opposition while his teammates did the job by scoring three goals.

“I had to follow my instinct”

After the match, he was logically elected man of the match, and a few tears were shed when he received this trophy.I think it’s probably the best game of my life, maybe the game in which I was most useful.“, he first explained, trophy in hand, before continuing: “Players change their minds and change the way they shoot. I had to follow my instinct, that’s what I felt. I’m very, very happy that I could help the team. We all felt that we had to keep believing – me and Cristiano, everyone makes mistakes, but the most important thing is how we react after those mistakes. We have to believe in ourselves and that’s what we did.“. A nice testimony for the one who should now face Kylian Mbappé and the Blues this Friday.

To sum up

Diogo Costa couldn’t resist collecting his man of the match award after the game of his life. The Portugal goalkeeper pulled off an incredible feat by stopping all three of the Slovenians’ penalties.
