The France team has fully its Euro 2016 campaign by taking the 3 points against Romania but the match was very difficult for the team of Deschamps.
That’s Dimitri Payet, whose excellent season in England with West Ham has earned him a starting spot in selection, which issued the Blues on a light shot from the left into the top corner in the 89th minute. Replaced during stoppages in play, the player left the field in tears, moved with emotion.
The scoring was opened by Olivier Giroud header in the 57th minute and Romania equalized from Stancu in the 65th, after a foul by Patrice Evra created a penalty. This victory snatched narrowly in opening the third largest sporting event allows blues confidently approach their next two matches on June 15 against Albania in Marseille and 19 against Switzerland (Gr. A). “We had a little trouble letting go off the horse (…) An opening match is never easy,” commented coach Didier Deschamps on the tv channel of TF1.
