Atlético Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann was the hero of the match as he scored a brace to hand hosts France their 2-0 win over world champions Germany at the Stade Velodrome in Marseille.

France took the lead on the stroke of halftime after Germany skipper Bastian Schweinsteiger was penalised for a foul on left-back Patrice Evra and the offence was equally punished as the aforementioned Griezmann tucked away the resulting penalty.

Antoine Griezmann added his brace in the 72nd minute following a rare mistake from Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer to seal his side’s place in the final despite the ‎best efforts of Germany. Hosts ‎France will now face Portugal in Sunday’s final as they sought a third title after the 1984 and 2000 triumphs.
