France🇫🇷 thumped Iceland🇮🇸 5⃣-2⃣ last night to set up a semi-final clash against Germany in Euro🏆 2016.
The match was essentially over in the 1st half as the host nation became the 1st team in the history🎉of the competition to score 4⃣ in the first half . Olivier Giroud💪 latched on to Matuidi's delicate ball💫 over the Viking defence and smashed it for the first time to give France the lead👏. A few minutes later, Paul Pogba⭐ scored his first goal of the tournament; beating his marker to head home Antoine Griezmann's inswinger from a corner. Iceland were thoroughly outplayed😫 in the first half and hardly had a chance to shoot😓. Two goals in two minutes just before the break underlined France's dominance👊. Dimitri Payet⚡ scored in the 42', when he shifted his ball to his left and beat the keeper with a low drive. Griezmann⭐ scored the 4th, chipping the ball over the onrushing keeper😎.
Iceland fans had something to cheer🙌 about when Sigthorsson scored a tap-in early in the 2nd half. Giroud's 2nd of the game in the 58' squashed😏 any hopes of a comeback. With the game in the bag, Didier Deschamps👔 brought on a few substitutes for match practise. Iceland managed to score another one towards the end of the game👏, Bjarnason heading a cross from the left past Hugo Lloris.
FRA: Giroud-12' 59', Pogba-20', Payet-42', Griezmann-25'
