France Defeats Germany in Semifinal

On Thursday afternoon (in the States), Germany played France to see who would play against Portugal on Saturday in the Euro 2016 Final. After 90 minutes plus some stoppage time, France won the semifinal match by a score of 2-0.

                For France, the story of the game was their stifling defense and some pivotal plays by Antoine Griezmann. They didn’t allow Germany many clean looks and it was clear that they were the superior team. Griezmann managed to score both French goals, as he put his countrymen on his back and helped France overcome the hump of defeating a German team that won the last World Cup.

                Now, Griezmann and France will face off against Christiano Ronaldo and Portugal in the Euro 2016 Final. If France plays the way they played against Germany, they will surely be the favorite. However, the end result is anyone’s guess. Tune in on Saturday to see which team will capture the Euro 2016 crown.
