Portugal coach Fernando Santos has made two alterations to his side for tonight's Euro 2016 final against hosts France (21:00 CEST), who are unchanged.

Pepe returns to the Portuguese line-up for the clash at the Stade de France, taking his place in the defence after sitting out their semi-final against Wales with a thigh injury.

Midfielder is William Carvalho also back for the Seleçao, having missed the victory over the Welsh through suspension.

Portugal XI: Rui Patricio; Cedric, Pepe, Fonte, Guerreiro; Joao Mario, William Carvalho, Adrien Silva, Renato Sanches; Nani and Cristiano.

Meanwhile, France boss Dider Deschamps keeps faith with the XI that started Thursday's last-four victory over Germany.

France XI: Lloris; Sagna, Koscielny, Umtiti, Evra; Pogba, Matuidi; Sissoko, Griezmann, Payet; and Giroud.
