Griezmann grabs another brace as France see off Germany to seal home Euro 2016 final

When that hotline bling, it can only mean one thing.

ANTOINE GRIEZMANN WAS the hero again for France, scoring both goals in tonight’s 2 -0 Euro 2016 semi-final over Germany.

Portugal lie in wait for the hosts, who should be brimming with confidence after tonight’s accomplished display punctuated with magic moments from Griezmann.

Bastian Schweinsteger’s stray hand helped France into a half-time lead in Marseille, getting a fist point blank in front of a Patrice Evra header.

Antoine Griezmann stood up to take the spot kick and once again proved he has put the Champions League final to the back of his mind as he coolly slotted away on the stroke of half-time.

Looked like a good decision to us, if only handballs like this were always caught.

In the 72nd minute, Griezmann struck again after Paul Pogba danced his way into enough space to dink in a cross and the Atletico star prodded the ball past Manuel Neuer.
