Which gets your vote?

The Euro 2016 has reached its conclusion with Portugal lifting the trophy and being crowned champions.

En route we’ve asked you to vote for your favourite goals of the various stages with Cristiano Ronaldo winning out in the Group Stages, Xherdan Shaqiri earning your votes in the last-16, Radja Nainggolan in the quarters and Ronaldo once again in the semi-finals.

But now, we want to relive and ask YOU to vote for your favourite goal from the entire tournament by taking part in our poll at the bottom of the page.

DIMITRI PAYET (FRANCE vs ROMANIA)

The opening match produced one of the best strikes from the host nation as Payet cut in from the right and fired a left-footed shot into the top corner for an 89th-minute winner.

CRISTIANO RONALDO (PORTUGAL vs HUNGARY)

The Real Madrid star turned up when his country needed him the most, producing an exquisite backheel flick behind his standing leg to divert Joao Maria’s right-wing cross.

LUKA MODRIC (CROATIA vs TURKEY)

The Real Madrid midfielder struck the only goal of the game and it was a blinder, a dropping volley hit on the run from 25 yards.

XHERDAN SHAQIRI (SWITZERLAND vs Poland)

Switzerland may have bowed out of the tournament with a penalty defeat to Poland but boy did they provide a moment of magic, courtesy of the Stoke man.

EDEN HAZARD (BELGIUM vs Hungary)

Hazard has had a mixed season to say the least but against Hungary he showed why the Chelsea man was given the Belgium captaincy in the absence of Vincent Kompany.

RADJA NAINGGOLAN (BELGIUM vs Wales)

Belgium were eliminated from the tournament by an inspired Welsh side in a 3-1 defeat but early signs in the game pointed to a win for Marc Wilmots team as Radja Nainggolan unleashed a pile-driver from distance.

HAL ROBSON-KANU (WALES vs Belgium)

With the game tied at 1-1, Hal Robson-Kanu produced a fitting tribute to the late, great Johan Cruyff. Despite being sandwiched by Marouane Fellaini and Thomas Meunier, executed a sublime Cruyff-turn before slotting his effort past Thibaut Courtois with perfection.

ANTOINE GRIEZMANN (FRANCE vs Iceland)

Iceland’s dream run came to a brutal end at the hands of the host nation and Antoine Griezmann’s brilliant chipped effort to make it 4-0 to France just before half-time put the tie well beyond the inspirational minnows.

CRISTIANO RONALDO (PORTUGAL vs Wales)

Cristiano Ronaldo made European Championship history as Portugal ended Wales’s extraordinary Euro 2016 journey with victory on Wednesday. The Portugal captain opened the scoring in Lyon with a majestic 50th-minute header

EDER (PORTUGAL vs France)

Euro 2016 came to a close Saturday with Portugal securing their first ever trophy, courtesy of Eder’s stunning extra-time goal.

Here, Sport360 looks back at the best performers of the tournament as voted by you using valorafutbol.com‘s ranking system.

Let us know what you think of our team by commenting below, using #360Fans on Twitter or getting in touch via Facebook.

GOALKEEPER: LUKASZ FABIANSKI (POLAND)

The Swansea star gets the nod after some fine saves at important times, with the fact he has led his country to the quarter-finals edging him ahead of Hugo Lloris and Manuel Neuer to the spot in goal.

RIGHT-BACK: DARIJO SRNA (CROATIA)

Chosen ahead of Chris Gunter, Joshua Kimmich and Kyle Walker. Not only did he perform impressively but did so while coping with the death of his father. Srna flew home for the funeral during the group stage but did not miss a match.

CENTRE-BACK: GIORGIO CHIELLINI ( ITALY )

The Azzurri back line was thoroughly impressive at Euro 2016, with the imposing centre-back the stand-out performer alongside Leonardo Bonucci.

Not only a key player defensively, the Juventus man didn’t put a foot wrong as he led his men with superb authority.

CENTRE-BACK: RAGNAR SIGURDSSON (ICELAND)

The smallest country to ever grace a major tournament captivated and inspired those watching Euro 2016.

Sigurdsson was their rock at the back alongside Kari Arnason, his composure and strength particularly shone as they knocked England out in the last 16.

LEFT-BACK: KAMIL GILK (POLAND)

The new Monaco signing marshalled his defence well and looked at all times enthusiastic on and off the ball.

Defended well against the menacing Cristiano Ronaldo in the quarter-finals, and was unfortunate to finish on the losing team when Poland were beaten by Portugal on penalties.

CENTRE-MIDFIELD: AARON RAMSEY (WALES)

You only needed to see the semi-final display against Portugal to see how important the absent Arsenal midfielder has been to Wales.

Ramsey impressed along with Joe Allen and his passing range – and know-how on when to keep possession – was crucial in the historic run to the last four, so too his defensive contribution.

CENTRE-MIDFIELD: TONI KROOS (GERMANY)

The 26-year-old is one of the best midfielders in Europe, with his incredible passing range, decision making and voracious work-rate.

Dictated proceedings for Germany but was unable to prevent his country bowing out to hosts France in the semi-finals.

CENTRE-MIDFIELD: ANDRES INIESTA (SPAIN)

His mix of cleverly weighed passing and pin-point vision was reflected in Spain’s wins over Czech Republic and Turkey.

At 32, the Barcelona man continues to set the pace of the game and inspire those around him. For the second major tournament in a row, it was unfortunate to see him bow out early as La Furia Roja were beaten by Italy in the last-16.

ATTACKING-MIDFIELD: IVAN PERISIC (CROATIA)

Apart from Luka Modric’s impressive display in the opening game against Turkey, Perisic ran the show for Croatia through their Euro campaign.

The Inter Milan star pulled the strings around the middle and was particularly effective going forward, where he netted goals against Czech Republic and Spain.

ATTACKING-MIDFIELD: GARETH BALE (WALES)

Brought Real Madrid’s winning mentality to the Welsh team on their first major tournament appearance for 58 years.

Bale talked a good game in France and backed it up with performances, netting in all three group matches and continuing to shine as Chris Coleman’s men made it all the way to the last four.

FORWARD: ANTOINE GRIEZMANN (FRANCE)

Following a fine season with Atletico Madrid, it should perhaps come as little surprise to see Griezmann shining so brightly for the home nation.

A fine finisher and intelligent in possession, the 25-year-old’s brace against world champions Germany, took his tally to six for the tournament.
