SAINT-DENIS, France -- Portugal is facing France in the European Championship final on Sunday. Camo Broncos Jerseys . Here are five Portugal players to watch:---CRISTIANO RONALDOThe most compelling character on the Stade de France stage.Ronaldo had a difficult start to Euro 2016: He was uncomplimentary about crowd-favorite Iceland, missed a probable match-winning penalty against Austria, and was furious when Hungary took the lead for a third time in their 3-3 draw.But hes still here, after raising his game and his team at key moments as Portugal steadily improved through the knockout rounds.The way he leapt high in the air to head the opening goal against Wales in the semifinals suggested Ronaldo is energized again.Aware of where he stands in the Ballon dOr race, Ronaldo knows that victory on Sunday could bring him a fourth career award ahead of Lionel Messi, Gareth Bale and Frances Antoine Griezmann.---PEPEThe love-him-or-hate-him Real Madrid defender had an excellent Euro 2016 until a thigh muscle injury kept him out of the semifinal.Pepe deserves a chance to play after being on his best behavior, and marshalling the defense through tightly-fought knockout games against Croatia and Poland.It would also reunite Pepe with referee Mark Clattenburg after their memorable meeting at the Champions League final in May. Pepes play-acting after minor clashes with two Atletico Madrid players prompted a disapproving, tongue-wagging gesture from Clattenburg and a repeated warning to Look out.---JOSE FONTEAt age 32, defender Fonte is reaching a late-blooming career peak.When Ronaldo and Pepe played at the 2010 World Cup, Fonte was preparing for another season in the third tier of English football with Southampton.Since then, Fonte was central to Southamptons rise to the Premier Leagues top half.Fonte stepped on the international stage when Fernando Santos became Portugal coach in 2014. His first call-up came in Santoss first match -- a 2-1 loss to France in a friendly at the Stade de France.Fonte had to wait for his chance at Euro 2016, replacing veteran Ricardo Carvalho after the draw with Hungary in the last group game.---RAPHAEL GUERREIROGuerreiro was born to Portuguese and French parents in the northeastern suburbs of Paris just 10 kilometers (6 miles) from the Stade de France.The 22-year-old left-back has impressed at Euro 2016 after playing just once in Portugals eight-match qualifying program. When he did not play here, Portugal trailed three times before salvaging a draw with Hungary.Guerreiro has been lively going forward and provided the cross for Ronaldos header against Wales.This should be no surprise to Borussia Dortmund, which acted early in the tournament to sign Guerreiro from French club Lorient.---ADRIEN SILVABetween the tough defense and the star attackers, Portugal has relied on a trio of Sporting Lisbon midfielders to link the play.Sporting captain Adrien Silva has been perhaps the standout alongside teammates William Carvalho and Joao Mario.Like Guerreiro and Fonte, Adrien Silva is a relatively late arrival in Santoss plans.Adrien Silva did not play in the group-stage games, and his neat passing has coincided with Portugal improving in each game since. Cheap Broncos Jerseys . -- Adam Snyder returned to the San Francisco 49ers this season because the offensive lineman thought it was his best opportunity to win a championship. Pink Broncos Jerseys . "We have always prided ourselves on the way we play defence. Having two big pieces back is going to be a key for us moving forward for years to come," said Knighthawks head coach Mike Hasen. .

Liverpool and Southampton sent Chelsea down to fourth place as the west London club was held to 2-2 at home.MILWAUKEE - Kyle Lohse was finally on top of his game. Lohse pitched eight strong innings for his first win in eight starts, Carlos Gomez hit a two-run homer on his bobblehead day and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Philadelphia Phillies 9-1 on Sunday. "I had a good slider working today," Lohse said after his longest outing of the season. "Im finally coming back around where I can snap it off. And Maldy (catcher Martin Maldonado) called a great game and the guys played great defence. So it was just a combination of everything." Scooter Gennett had a two-run triple for the Brewers, who took the final three games of the four-game series. Milwaukee slugger Ryan Braun left after the third inning with a sore right thumb, which has been a lingering problem for him. He struck out in his only plate appearance in the first. "It wasnt real good to start the game and he wanted to play," manager Ron Roenicke said. "But the first at-bat wasnt good again." Gennetts triple highlighted a four-run second inning and Gomezs homer in the sixth off starter Jonathan Pettibone was plenty of insurance for Lohses first victory since beating San Diego on April 22. Lohse (2-6) experienced minor hamstring tightness in his left leg after running the bases during his previous start Tuesday, but showed no ill effects. His only major hiccup was Humberto Quinteros first home run of the season, a shot into the Phillies bullpen in right. Lohse got off to a shaky start, though. The first two batters singled and then Ryan Howard singled with one out. But his line drive was hit hard and right at right fielder Norichika Aoki. Michael Young, who led off with a single, tried to score from second but was out at the plate on a strong throw from Aoki. "The first inning was a little shaky," Roenicke said. "I thought it was huge the throw that Nori made to home to get us an out there. And once he got through that, command got really good." Lohse agreed with his managers assessment of Aokis play. "That got me going, because it was a little sketchy there at first, giving up some hits early," Lohse said. "But after that, kind of settled in and the guys played great defence." The Brewers turned two double plays, one for Lohse and one for closer Jim Henderson in the ninth. After escaping the first, Lohse faced the minimum each inning until the eighth. After two quick outs, Quintero spoiled the shutout bid with a home run. Lohse then struckk out pinch-hitter Freddy Galvis. Black Broncos Jerseys. "All his pitches, he got working," Roenicke said. "The fastball was located great, down in the zone. The sliders were all good, some nice curveballs, great changeups. But, he got it all working." Lohse gave up four hits, walked one and struck out six. "Ive got to give Lohse some credit, too," Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said. "He knew how to pitch us. He changed speeds good. Located his fastball good. But, at the same time I feel we could have definitely hit better." The Phillies slipped to 31-33 after opening the series with a 5-1 win that pulled them a game above .500. Jean Segura, who came in leading the NL in hits with 82, singled home two runs in the seventh. Maldonado added a solo homer in the eighth. Henderson, just back from a strained right hamstring, pitched a scoreless ninth. Pettibone (3-2) allowed six runs, four earned, and four hits in 5 1-3 innings. He struck out four but walked two and hit two batters with pitches in his first career start against the Brewers. Milwaukee got to Pettibone in the second and then again in the sixth. Logan Schafer singled in the sixth and then Gomez hit the first pitch from Pettibone into the Brewers bullpen in left for his 11th home run of the season. After Maldonado walked, Manuel brought in Jeremy Horst. The Brewers scored four runs in the second. Pettibone got in trouble right away by making an error. He misplayed a bunt by Gomez, who went to second on Yuniesky Betancourts single. Pettibone then hit Maldonado with a pitch, loading the bases. Gomez scored on Juan Franciscos grounder to first. Gennett, who made his major league debut Tuesday night against Oakland, tripled to right-centre for the first two RBIs of his career. He scored on Lohses sacrifice.
