Euro 2016 final: Who might score the first goal and when?

France will play Portugal in the Stade de France on Sunday, but who is worth considering?

Euro 2016 concludes with the final on Sunday.

So who's it worth going for? Well, the favourites are, of course, the tournament top scorer Antoine Griezmann of France (six goals in the tournament) and Portugal's all-time record scorer Cristiano Ronaldo (three tournament goals).

We've looked at them in detail below as well as a couple of the other options that you may want to factor in, such as each side's other main forwards and likely impact players from the bench…

Finals are often close affairs between arguably the two best teams in the competition. Therefore, it might be worth considering that the first goal might come from a set-piece, or a penalty or even an own-goal.

Bruno Alves has a decent goalscoring record from the back, while Dimitri Payet is a contender for player of the tournament and warrants major consideration too. 

This chart below shows when the best strikers at Euro 2016 scored their goals during matches at Euro 2016 up to the quarter-finals. From this you can see that Griezmann has scored plenty of late goals, while Ronaldo hasn't done too bad early on in games.

And while considering when the first goal might be scored, it might be prudent to have a look over what has happened in previous finals. And we've covered that in this infographic below…

Got all that? Well, we've made our prediction. Good luck if you're making one too.
