Antoine Griezmann double sends determined France to Euro final

MARSEILLE: Antoine Griezmann took up the mantle as challenger-in-chief to Cristiano Ronaldo with two goals that crushed world champions Germany and saw France into Sunday's Euro 2016 final against Portugal.A penalty awarded seconds before half-time caused turmoil in the German camp. Griezmann took his chance and added a second strike to extend his lead as the tournament's leading scorer and become France's new football hero."He's our little Mr Extra," said fellow striker Olivier Giroud after the dramatic win before 65,000 spectators on a hot Thursday night in Marseille.
France's first victory over their rivals in a major tournament since 1958 came out of a controversial penalty decision at the end of the first half.
