PARIS. – When the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) Euro 2016 had kicked off in France about one month ago, French journalists were saying that love for football is not as great in France as it is in England and Germany, and that the country “wakes up” only when the French national squad wins the tournament.
In Thursday’s semifinal, Les Bleus defeated reining world champions Germany thanks to the two goals scored by Antoine Griezmann, and made it to the Euro 2016 final.

And when the host nation won, the entire French capital city began to celebrate the victory.
