West Ham ace Dimitri Payet named Player of the Euros

West Ham ace Dimitri Payet has been named the Euros Player of the Tournament.

Payet scored three goals during France's run to final, where they lost 1-0 to Portugal in the Stade de France on Sunday night.

A statement on Uefa's official website read: “Dimitri Payet ended Uefa Euro 2016 where he started it, on top of the Player Barometer ahead of Antoine Griezmann and Gareth Bale, while Rui Patrício overtook Manuel Neuer as top goalkeeper."

Payet's moment of the tournament came in France's opening match, where he scored a dramatic late winner in their opening game against Romania.
