France beats Germany to enter final

Updated On 2016-07-08 15:07:03 Sports

France played well in Euro 2016 Semi Final match and beats Germany to enter Final. Germany coach Joachim Löw was forced to make a number of crucial changes due to injuries and suspensions. Liverpool's Emre Can saw his first action of Euro 2016 in midfield, while Benedikt Höwedes paired with Jerome Boateng in central defense.

France came out with an unexpected line of high pressing, which seemed to knock the Germans back on their heels. The equipe tricolore almost took the lead in minute 6, when Paul Pogba shook off Thomas Müller in midfield and Antoine Griezmann danced through Germany's defense. Manuel Neuer was able to palm away his low shot, though.

Six minutes later, Can guided a cross to an open Müller, deployed as a center forward, but his fallow stretch continued, and he pushed the ball wide. Can himself unleashed a fierce blast at Hugo Lloris, but the French keeper pulled off a save that could make his personal highlight reel. Germany seized control in midfield, maintaining two-thirds of possession, and Lloris was called into action again when Bastian Schweinsteiger pounced on a Mesut Özil rebound in minute 26. Olivier Giroud could have broken the ice against the run of play, getting behind the German back line, but Höwedes chased him down before he could test Neuer.
