Long frustrated Portuguese soccer fans finally had reason to cheer during the Euro2016 championship in France. This is the story of Portugal’s improbable 2-week journey to glory, through the anticipation and joy of one community of supporters… in Newark, New Jersey (Ironbound).

Dedicated to the Portuguese community in Newark, and the fans who made this celebration so special.
