Germany 0-2 France: Antoine Griezmann’s double sees Didier Deschamps’ side into Euro 2016 final
Antione Griezman scored twice as France beat Germany 2-0 at the Stade Velodrome to set up a final with Portugal in Paris, on Sunday.
Germany dominated possession during a frantic first-half in Marseille, but it was France who broke the deadlock in injury time at the end of the first period after Patrice Evra’s header was adjudged to have hit the arm of Bastian Schweinsteiger.
Griezmann made no mistake from the spot (45+2) and the tournament’s leading goalscorer was again celebrating in the 72nd minute after he capitalised on mistakes from Joshua Kimmich and Manuel Neuer to score his sixth goal of the competition to send the host nation through to the final.
France now have the opportunity to win their first major tournament since Euro 2000 and repeat the triumph of the side Deschamps captained to World Cup glory in 1998.
