When France meet Portugal in Sunday's Euro 2016 final, the outcome is likely to depend on the performances of Cristiano Ronaldo and Antoine Griezmann – the second time the two players have clashed with a European trophy at stake in six weeks.Portugal's full-backs Raphael Guerreiro and Cedric Soares are good enough to replicate that, which could push Deschamps to move away from the more attacking 4-2-3-1 formation to revert to a 4-3-3, restoring defensive midfielder N'Golo Kante.What has been evident with this Portugal side is that they are no longer a side entirely dependent on Ronaldo.Portugal's most high-profile player may have three goals, but his Real Madrid explosiveness has been absent.Captain Ronaldo tracks back and encourages his teammates.
