Payet reaches Euro 2016 Final

Dimitri Payet was left celebrating another famous victory after he played his part in helping France reach the UEFA Euro 2016 Final with a 2-0 win over Germany.

The West Ham forward enjoyed a memorable night in Marseille and will now be preparing for his first major final against Portugal in Paris on 10 July.

Two goals from the tournament's top goalscorer Antoine Griezmann helped France record their first victory over Germany in a major tournament since 1958.

The France forward scored the first from the penalty spot right on the stroke of half-time after Germany's Bastian Schweinsteiger was penalised for handball in an aerial challenge with Patrice Evra.

Griezmann scored the crucial second with 18 minutes left on the clock when he turned the ball home from close-range after Manuel Neuer could only half-clear Paul Pogba's cross.

Germany refused to lie down and Joshua Kimmich hit the woodwork late on, before seeing his header superbly saved by Hugo Lloris.

France held on to beat the World Champions and became the first host nation to reach the Euro Final on two separate occasions.

Payet has been one of the star performers for France during the tournament and will now be hoping his side can beat Cristiano Ronaldo and his Portuguese team-mates on Sunday night at the Stade de France to lift the trophy.
