France Proceeds To The Finals After Thrashing Germany
The French team are obviously delighted and have just done the Iceland Clap chant with their home fans which I think should be automatic disqualification.Meanwhile, the Germany players are devastated and might they well be because they played very well and probably deserved at least extra time but that’s football!
It was a weird semi-final in the end as Germany were marginally the better side and created some very good chances but it just wouldn’t go in.
Even right at the end of injruy time Lloris saved brilliantly from Kimmich while Gotze flashed a header wide. It was just one of those nights.
Antoine Griezmann scored both goals to take his personal tally to six for the tournament. He got a standing ovation as he was taken off for Cabaye in the final few minutes from almost the whole stadium at the Stade Velodrome.
Germany will feel hard done by but France won’t care, they face Portugal in Sunday’s final.
