    导出博客文章MARSEILLE, France -- France is heading back to soccers elite, and Antoine
    Griezmann is the man leading the way.Griezmann scored both goals to give France
    a 2-0 win over world champion Germany on Thursday and a place in the European
    Championship final against Portugal.It was a victory built as much on German
    errors as it was on Griezmanns skill, with a handball in the box and a poor
    defensive pass paving the way for his goals.But that didnt matter to the fans
    who made Marseilles Stade Velodrome ring with the sound of the Marseillaise,
    Frances national anthem. Their team won this tournament in 2000, two years after
    lifting the World Cup, but it hasnt had a trophy since then.Developed as a
    player in Spain, Griezmann has been the star of the show for France, leading a
    high-scoring team with six goals, twice as many as any other player in the
    tournament.I think theres a lot of happiness around France tonight, said coach
    Didier Deschamps, whose team faces Cristiano Ronaldos Portugal on Sunday at the
    Stade de France.This team has everything it needs to be loved, Im very proud...
    Its fabulous to be in the final.Griezmann, who could have completed a hat trick
    in the 86th minute but shot straight at goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, was already
    looking ahead.Were very happy, he said. We have to keep our feet on the ground.
    We still have a match to go.For Germany, defeat cost it the chance to add the
    European title to the World Cup it won in 2014.It had gone 50 years unbeaten
    against host nations at major tournaments, dating back to its loss to England in
    the 1966 World Cup final and encompassing a famous 7-1 humbling of Brazil in the
    2014 World Cup semifinals.While a repeat of the Brazil rout was never on the
    cards, Germany could have scored more than once as it dominated the first half.
    But it was denied by poor shooting from Thomas Mueller, who ended his tournament
    scoreless, and a save by Hugo Lloris to block Emre Cans bouncing shot.France
    took the lead from the penalty spot in first half stoppage time after Bastian
    Schweinsteiger handled the ball in an aerial challenge with Patrice
    Evra.Griezmann stepped up to score, striking the penalty hard to Neuers right.I
    really wanted to take a penalty in a big match like that. I was very composed, I
    didnt think twice, Griezmann said.It was the second time in as many games that
    Germany had given away a spot-kick for handball. Jerome Boateng blocked the ball
    with an arm above his head in the quarterfinal against Italy.Its just bad luck,
    just an unlucky action, Germany coach Joachim Loew said of the penalty. In a
    challenge, when youre jumping, there are movements that you cant really
    control.Trailing in a match for the first time in the tournament, Germany could
    not recover its previous dominance after halftime. It then had to cope with
    losing key defender Boateng, who picked up an ankle injury after an hour.The
    German defense had not conceded from open play all tournament, but it fell apart
    for Griezmanns second goal in the 72nd minute. A sluggish pass by Benedikt
    Hoewedes to right back Joshua Kimmich was cut out by Paul Pogba and Neuer could
    only palm away the midfielders cross to Griezmann, who finished with
    ease.Germany responded well and could have pulled one back when Kimmich hit the
    post, before Julian Draxler sent a free-kick narrowly wide and Hoewedes headed
    over.We had chances to come back, Neuer said. We played a good European
    Championship and its very bitter to go out.Loew insisted his team had played
    better than France but had been denied by bad luck, including the injuries and
    suspensions that hit four key players -- Boateng, as well as defender Mats
    Hummels, midfielder Sami Khedira and forward Mario Gomez, with the latter three
    missing the game.Loew, who is under contract until the 2018 World Cup, said he
    was not sure of his future.France, while not always reassuring in defense, came
    through victorious in its first game of the tournament against genuinely
    top-class opposition.After the final whistle, Frances jubilant players
    celebrated with the fans by performing the Huh chant made famous at the
    tournament by Iceland.Across France and in the French team, the attention was
    firmly on the diminutive Griezmann after another decisive performance. Hes our
    little man that gives us that bit extra, teammate Olivier Giroud said.

    should be celebrated because it will not always be this way. With the amount of
    money given to players by their clubs these days, it is a wonder that so many of
    those teams allow the sport to continue to take away many of their assets so
    they can play for a different team in the middle of their season.
