Assistant referees: György Ring (Hungary) Vencel Tóth (Hungary) Fourth official: Björn Kuipers (Netherlands) Additional assistant referees: Tamás Bognár (Hungary) Ádám Farkas (Hungary) Reserve assistant referee: Sander van Roekel (Netherlands) Man of the Match: Dimitri Payet (France) In the opening game of Euro 2016, amid a huge security operation following recent terrorist attacks in Paris, the hosts had a nervous first-half. Things looked no better at the beginning of the second until Olivier Giroud outleapt keeper Ciprian Tatarusanu, heading into the back of the net. A daft challenge by Patrice Evra resulted in a penalty, giving Romania a quick route back into the game as Stancu slotted it away with confidence. Just when it looked like Romania were sure to hold on to the draw, Dimitri Payet hit a screamer into the top corner, giving Tatarusanu no chance and Les Bleus an unconvincing victory.
