Euro 2016 in Paris – level 2

14-07-2016 07:00

France is hosting the Euro 2016, and it played against to Portugal. At half time, the score was 0-0, and people lit mopeds and cars on fire in the streets of Paris.

Then during extra time, Portugal scored the only goal of the game and France had no time to reply. The disappointed fans took to the streets of Paris to vent their frustration. Police fired teargas to make the people stop.

There was more than disappointment in the streets, however. The Portuguese fans were also out and celebrating.

Difficult words: disappointed (sad because something did not go as you wanted), vent (let out emotion and feelings), frustration (the feeling of being upset).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
