Was Portugal a worthy winner of Euro 2016?

It may already seem like a long time ago but the article we wrote about Euro 2016 proved so popular I wanted to spend a little more time with Tableau and data visualisation to find out if Portugal were indeed worthy winners of Euro 2016. We all know that they scraped through the group stages without a win and then proceeded to need extra time and penalties to win the tournament outright. But what could the other statistics tell us? I took a closer look at the goals scored, when they were scored and who by. I even took some time to evaluate the relative value of the squad compared to other nations in the tournament. The results are below. The great thing about data is you can interpret in many different ways and as they say ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’. So what do you think? Was Portugal a worthy winner?
