Charlie Austin sends message to Southampton teammates on Twitter

Jose Fonte celebrates with team mates after scoring the third goal for Southampton

Southampton's Cedric and Jose Fonte both started for Portugal as they won Euro 2016.

Charlie Austin has congratulated Southampton teammates Cedric and Jose Fonte, after they helped Portugal win Euro 2016 last night.

Cedric and Fonte both started for Portugal, as they beat the hosts France to lift the trophy.

Portugal won the match 1-0 after extra-time, and Austin was delighted that his teammates were so successful.

The final itself was a poor match, with both teams rather cancelling each other out.

However, Cedric and Fonte were two of the star performers on display - in a contest where defences came out on top.

The duo dealt well with everything France threw at them throughout the match, and Portugal got their reward when Eder slammed home a winner in extra-time.

It is the first time that Portugal have ever won a major international tournament, and the players were visibly emotional when the final whistle blew.

Cedric and Fonte will now be given some well deserved time off, before they return to Southampton pre-season training ahead of the new competitive campaign.
