Portugal's Ricardinho, considered to be the best player in the world, wasted no time during the match on Saturday. He scored the first goal in just 59 seconds, after Spain's Miguelin lost the ball on his own side of the court, reports Efe.
Spain tied the game just one minute before halftime, confirming forecasts about the teams' equality on the court.
Spain took a 2-1 lead in a strategic move with Lin connecting Miguelin's pass and scoring just eight minutes before the whistle.
However, Portugal's Bruno Coelho scored the surprise last-minute goal with one minute and 42 seconds to go before the end of the second half, sending the teams into overtime.
The first overtime ended with no change, as Andre Sousa managed to repel Miguelin's best shot.
The second overtime began with an ankle injury, forcing Ricardinho to exit the court limping.
Around four minutes before the end of overtime, a foul and a penalty kick scored by Bruno Coelho cost Spain the championship.
