The stage is set for the Euro 2016 Final. France faces Portugal, looking to win European football's showpiece event just outside Paris. And for the hosts, it promises to be an emotional evening. CCTV's Dan Williams reports.

For France, the final at Saint-Denis carries extra significance.

Terrorists targeted that stadium during France’s friendly with Germany in November last year.

Across the country, the scars of that tragedy remain clear and the meaning is not lost on the players.

France goes into the final boosted following a hard fought victory over World Cup Champions Germany.
