France beats Germany 2-0, plays Portugal in Euro Final


France has earned the right to face Cristiano Ronaldo and Portugal on home soil in Sunday’s Euro 2016 final after a 2-0 win over Germany in Thursday’s semifinal in Marseille.

Antoine Griezmann scored in each half, with his penalty kick at the end of the first half proving to be the game-winner.

Bastian Schweinsteiger conceded the penalty after leaving his arm extended while going to head a cross and having the ball hit his hand.

Griezmann added a second in the 72nd, pouncing on a ball punched by Manuel Neuer right to him a few yards out, and Les Bleus finished off the victory with some help from goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.
