Spain secured a spot in the Euro final by beating France 2-1 in a thrilling match in Munich, Germany. The opening goal came from Randal Kolo Muani with a header in the 9th minute, assisted by Kylian Mbappé, marking France’s first goal in the tournament. However, Lamine Yamal of Spain equalized with a spectacular goal in the 21st minute, becoming the youngest goal scorer in Euro history at 16 years and 362 days.

Just 4 minutes later, Spain took the lead with a goal from midfielder Dani Olmo. The Spanish team will now face the winner of the match between England and the Netherlands in the other semi-final scheduled for Wednesday. France, despite a strong defensive effort, struggled to match Spain’s offensive prowess and creativity, ultimately falling short in the semi-final.

France, hampered by the lackluster performance of Mbappé and a subdued Griezmann, failed to make a significant impact on the game. With defensive tactics in place, they succumbed to Spain’s attacking force. The French team exits the Euro with a disappointing performance and a bitter taste of defeat.

Spain, on the other hand, will aim for their fourth European title after victories in 1964, 2008, and 2012, facing either England or the Netherlands in the final. Having overcome Germany and France in the knockout stages, Spain enters the final as a formidable force.

France, the tournament favorite, failed to live up to expectations, lacking ambition and creativity to progress to the final. Despite a promising start, their struggles in creating chances and finishing cost them dearly. Mbappé, in particular, failed to shine and will leave the Euro with minimal impact. His missed opportunity in the 86th minute epitomized his tournament.

The contrast was stark with Yamal, who dazzled before fading in the second half. With only one penalty goal to his name, Mbappé’s performance was underwhelming, mirroring France’s overall display. The French team’s dream of a fourth final appearance in five major tournaments vanished against Spain’s quality.
