Following Portugal’s 1-0 win over France in the Euro 2016 final, Vancouver-based fans went wild and showed their Portuguese pride.

The win came as a surprise to many given that the hosts France were firm favourites, perhaps even to Portugal fans based on their collective reaction. People clad in red, green, and yellow spilled out of bars lining Commercial Drive – even blocking traffic – in their excitement on Sunday afternoon.

The party went on for hours after the win.

Check out the spectacle below:
