FRANCE BREAKDOWN GERMAN MACHINE INTO PIECES TO MAKE EURO 2016 FINAL
Griezmann celebrates with Andre-Pierre Gignac after sending France through to the final.
It'll be a party in Paris and France will be there.
As it did in 1984 and again in 1998, France reached the final of a home football tournament after stunning world champion Germany 2-0 in Marseille Thursday.
Antoine Griezmann, one of the outstanding players of the past season, scored both goals to set up a final clash with Cristiano Ronaldo and his Portugal team at Stade de France on Sunday.
For France, a nation which has endured a turbulent year in the wake of the Paris attacks, much of the focus has been on events off the field of play.
But on a night of high tension it was the country's footballers who did it proud, producing a battling performance to see off a German side which had knocked it out of the World Cup two years ago.
For France, which won the Euros on home soil in 1984 and the World Cup in 1998, this represents another opportunity to secure sporting immortality.
It was a hard-fought victory for a team which had approached this tie with a certain amount of trepidation given the reputation of its opponent.
"I'm absolutely delighted and very proud," said Griezmann, whose six goals are double the next highest scorer at the tournament.
"There's still one match to go to finish with a flourish; it's going to be very tricky but I hope this won't be the end of things.
"It's our duty to win matches for the French public, and let's hope we can finish on a high too.
