Griezmann Boots France into Euro Championship Final
For Germany, Euro 2016 started and ended with hands. Three of them, to be exact.
Some dirty. Some questionable. The final one — a debatable call on Bastian Schweinsteiger — put them out of this tournament.
And with that, Les Bleus are off to their first final in 10 years following a stunning 2-0 win over the defending world champs.
You can hardly blame German bench boss Joachim Low for, perhaps, not feeling comfortable telling his players what to do with their hands.
His scratch-n-sniff moment will forever be ingrained in the minds of those who’ve witnessed it.
But after watching Jerome Boateng’s Titanic-like moment last weekend against Italy, it was shocking to see Schweinsteiger produce a similar handball that completely derailed Germany’s game — one that ended Die Mannschaft’s European Championship.
