France is hosting the Euro 2016. France plays against to Portugal. At half time, the score is 0-0. People are angry. They set mopeds and cars on fire in Paris.

The end of the match happens. Portugal scores a goal. Portugal wins. The French get angry. They go to the streets. They let off some steam.

The Portuguese are in the streets, too. They are celebrating.

Difficult words: score (a number of goals), match (a game), let off some steam (let your “bad” emotions out).
