It's fair to say that Eder quickly established himself as a Portugal hero on Sunday night.
The 28-year-old, who failed to score a goal for Swansea City in the Premier League last season, stunned France with a well-taken strike from 25 yards to help his national side claim Euro 2016 silverware.
It was truly a remarkable night for Portugal, who lost their captain Cristiano Ronaldo through injury after just 20 minutes of the showdown.

While the loss of Ronaldo clearly hurt Portugal, the players left on the field of play stepped up and managed to win their first ever major competition.
And it was substitute Eder who proved to be the match-winner.
Following his strike, Eder produced a rather odd celebration; he opted to pull out a white glove from his sock and put it on his left hand.
What's all that about then? Well, we have the answer.
Before the tournament began, the forward insisted that the white glove made him feel good and he used it as motivation.
“White glove? It’s just a celebration,” he said post-match, as quoted by O Jogo.
“It makes me feel good as well. It is a motivation. Well ran in France and I am sure it will continue to run.”
Well, if his white glove made him feel good previously, it must make him feel incredible right now.
Portugal the team
In all honesty, Portugal defied the odds to overcome their opponents, but you have to credit them for their fight and hunger throughout the 120 minutes at the Stade de France.
Following the game, Portugal boss Fernando Santos praised his 'amazing group' of players.
He stated, as per ESPN: "I've always said we're a team. I never hide my thoughts -- I always tell my players what's on my mind.
"I've always told them we've got great talent but we need to fight more than our opponents, run more than them and be more concentrated than them. We have an amazing group. They've always believed what I told them: that we could win this."
