Germany dominated possession throughout but rarely troubled Hugo Lloris as they endured 'one of those nights'. This was their sixth consecutive semi-final appearances in Euros and World Cups but they had now won only two of them. The key moment of this game came in added time at the end of the first-half. Bastien Schweinsteiger led with his arm as he defended a cross and referee Nicola Rizzoli pointed to the spot for a handball offence. Lack of experience on the big occasion can't be blamed for Schweinsteiger's rush of blood. It was his 38th appearance in European Championship and World Cup finals tournaments; more than any other player. Griezmann duly despatched the resulting penalty with the last kick of the half. The Atletico Madrid forward added his second deep in to the second-half when he stabbed the ball home after Manuel Neuer fumbled a cross. He had now scored six goals at Euro 2016. Only Michel Platini with nine goals had scored more at a European Championship finals. That was in 1984 when France lifted the Henri Delaunay Trophy in France. 32 years later, only Portugal stood in the way of history repeating.
