Vancouver fans close Portuguese Club after Portugal wins Euro 2016

First they were excited. Then they were nervous. Then they were ecstatic. That’s the range of emotions Osvalda Almeida of Vancouver says she and her family went through as she watched Portugal play France in the 2016 Euro Championship final Sunday. And when Portugal won 1-0, Almeida, like hundreds of other Portuguese Vancouvers, headed
straight to Comercial Drive. Almeida was walking down the street draped in Portugal colours with her husband Paulo and son Nelson. She watched the match in her home with about 25 family and friends. “When we scored, we were ecstatic,” said Almeida, who was born in Portugal and moved to Canada in 1985. “There was no stopping us then.”
