Euro 2016

Antoine Griezmann was again the star of the show as hosts France marched into the finals of Euro 2016 after beating Germany 2-0.

Germany controlled the proceedings for longer spells of the game but were found wanting in the final third. Just when it looked like it would finish goal less at half-time, Bastian Schweinsteiger was adjudged to have handled the ball in the penalty area. Griezmann converted it coolly to give France the lead. He doubled it after the interval with a neat finish into the empty net. The Germans tried their best to get back into the game and threw many bodies up front but were poor with their finishing. France have their captain Hugo Lloris to thank for the margin as he stopped Germany many times with acrobatic saves.


France will now face Portugal, who defeated Wales, in the finals at the Stade de France on Sunday.

France v Germany - Player of the game

Atletico MadriGriezmann congratulated by Didier Deschampsd star Griezmann was always supposed to be the leading striker for France in this tournament – especially after his stellar season at club level. And he didn’t disappoint so far with composed displays. But what he displayed against Germany was at a higher level with Griezmann’s goal the clear difference between the sides. Undoubtedly, a performance worth the man-of-the-match award.
