Euro 2024: Spain Through To Finals With Comeback Win Over France

Spain have reached the final of Euro 2024 after a hard-fought 2-1 win over France in Munich on Tuesday night.

In the 9th minute, France, who had reached the last four without scoring from open play, broke the deadlock when Kylian Mbappe’s in-swinging cross allowed Randal Kolo Muani to head home from close range.

Spain pressed relentlessly for an equalizer but initially found it difficult to penetrate France’s well-organized defense.

Indeed, it was the youngest player on the pitch, 16-year-old Lamine Yamal, who produced a moment of magic to level the scores in the 21st minute.

France and Spain traded attacks in the closing stages, with Mbappe and Yamal going close from the edge of the area. Spain’s defense held firm for the remainder of the match to book their place in the final, where they will meet the winner of the other semifinal between England and the Netherlands.

Awaiting Spain in Sunday’s final at the Olympic Stadium in Berlin (kick-off 9pm) will be the winner of Wednesday’s semi-final between England and the Netherlands in Dortmund (also at 9pm).
