France wins

MARSEILLE (AFP) – Antoine Griezmann’s double for France in Thursday’s 2-0 semi-final win over Germany at Euro 2016 broke die Mannschaft’s 50-year winning streak against host nations at major tournaments.

The French victory in Marseille was the first time Germany had lost to the hosts at a major finals since their famous 4-2 defeat to England in the 1966 World Cup final at Wembley.

Germany had enjoyed half a century of ending host nations’ involvement in their own tournament until their defeat at the Stade Velodrome.
