France 1-0 Germany: Hummels own goal seal victory for Les Bleus

France get off to a winning start in Group F by seeing off a toothless Germany.

Hummels’ own goal proved to be the difference as Germany worked hard but were unable to break down France’s stubborn defence.

France’s win might have been more comfortable but for a few offside calls against the electric Mbappe.

Serge Gnabry went closest for Germany, sending a looping volley narrowly over the bar from a Robin Gosens cross, while France, their ranks bolstered by the return of Karim Benzema, who started up front, struck the post through midfielder Adrien Rabiot.

France’s win leaves them second in Group F after Portugal’s 3-0 win over Hungary earlier, while Germany sit in third.

This is Germany’s first ever defeat in their opening game at the Euros. Low’s side aren’t at risk of going out yet but they’ll need to find their shooting boots to get through a difficult group.

France head to Budapest to face Hungary next while Germany welcome Portugal to Munich this weekend.

France have shown why they’re tournament favourites already. It’s up to everyone else to meet their standard.
