Both Germany and France were deserving to be playing in the Euro 2016 final, but unfortunately as the two teams met in the semi-finals of the tournament, only one was going to have that opportunity. In the end, the squad that will face Portugal on 10th July will be France.
The game started with a slight advantage for Germany, with the 2014 World Cup winners looking like the more dangerous team in the first-half. Nevertheless, a mistake by Bastian Schweinsteiger in the 45th minute led to a penalty, which was calmly scored by Antoine Griezmann.
About ten minutes later, the Atletico Madrid forward stroke again, as the defense of Germany made a collective mistake which led to a scramble in the penalty box in front of Neuer and a second-goal for France. Joakim Low’s men tried as hard as possible to find the back the back of the net, but their efforts did not materialize.

Decent argument that Griezmann has been better in this tournament than Zidane was in 98? Just needs dominant final now.— Eoin McDevitt (@EoinMcDevitt) July 7, 2016
Griezmann is a bit underrated. Quite plenty rate him but he's one of the very best in Europe now. So much to his game than just goals.— Sergi Domínguez (@FutbolSergi) July 7, 2016
Griezmann is the second player to score 6+ goals in a euros FT.— MisterChip (English) (@MisterChiping) July 7, 2016
