What do you do with your Silver Boot award if you’re Cristiano Ronaldo? Give it to Nani of course! The Valencia winger has thanked his former Man. United teammate for the gift following Portugal’s Euro 2016 final win over France
Real Madrid superstar and Portugal captain, Cristiano Ronaldo must have been in a particularly generous mood after his country’s 1-0 win over France in the star-studded Euro 2016 final on Sunday.
Ronaldo came off after 25 minutes due to injury and was forced to watch on as his team mates clinched Portugal’s first ever major international trophy.
After the Euro 2016 final, the final goal scorer table for the tournament was confirmed as Antoine Griezmann was the clear winner of the Euro 2016 top goal scorer table, with six goals, three more than his nearest rival, Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Portugal captain came second, with three goals, thanks to his better assists tally at the tournament of three which beat out two French players – Olivier Giroud and Dimitri Payet, and as a result, Ronaldo was handed the Silver Boot.
Also on three goals, alongside Gareth Bale and Alvaro Morata, was Nani, who confirmed that he received the Silver Boot in the changing room, from Cristiano Ronaldo.
Nani posted a picture on Instagram, saying: “More than a captain you’re a champion! Thanks for the gift! Let’s go Portugal we are the Champions!”
