Semi-final 2 - France v. Germany

As France v. Germany kick off in tonight's France 2016 semi-final, it will be impossible to erase memories of the last time that these sides played, in November 2015 when terrorist bombs disrupted the events and the players spent the night in the stadium. However, let's hope this match will banish that memory with some glorious, attacking football. I can't wait to see it - won't you me?

Good afternoon. I second that. I sure hope this match is remembered for the football.

You're welcome. Watching a seminal between two titans is a great way to spend a birthday.

No Kante!

2:48 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Hope they give me a present of a good attacking match

2:49 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I have two quiz questions.

1) When did a host nation last defeat the Germans in a major tournament.

2) When did France last defeat Germany in a competitive match.

2:49 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Me too. Kante was dropped vs Iceland and has been replaced by new Barca signing, Umtiti.

2:51 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I would say back in the 1938 World Cup

He was suspended for the Iceland match

Unlike yesterday , both teams are wearing their traditional colors
I heard Portugal were considered the home team but the refs were wearing red!!!!

2:55 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Just about to insert tape player in to my nose

2:57 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

On the France 2016 predictions front, here are the implications:

Blue Devil, The Saint, Someone Said, and Yellows have picked Germany for the final

Gooner, MUR, Red Devil, Red Dragon, UWS, WHR, and Simon have picked France

Chelskilad has hedged his bets, picking both for the final.

2:58 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Nice one, UWS!

2:58 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Tony's a genius

3:00 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

They're off from Marseille.

3:01 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

And we're away - fast pace to the start.

3:02 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Maybe Chelskilad knows something the rest of us don't?

3:02 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Sounds like a plan and yes, Tony appears to be a genius or Elsa has a great bookie.

3:03 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Fast start

3:03 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - Payet went past Kimmich and won a corner off the defender. Good start for him.

3:03 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Payet wins a corner off of Can.The corner is headed away.

3:03 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The answer to the first quiz question is that Germany last lost to a host nation on July 30,1966. Since then they have won seven in a row against the host nation. Some in a penalty shootout.

3:06 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Here's the current situation with the Golden Boot:

Antoine Griezmann - 4 goals
Alvaro Morata - 3 goals
Dimitri Payet - 3 goals
Cristiano Ronaldo - 3 goals
Gareth Bale - 3 goals
Luis Almedia da Cunho - 3 goals
Olivier Giroud - 3 goals

3:06 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Great move by the French
Great save

3:07 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - Griezmann wriggled through the defense and shot - saved well by Neuer.

3:08 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Great save by Neuer from Griezmann. France is off to an electric start.

3:08 PM  
Blogger The Red Devil (1 FCK) said...

Good game so far, and France is pressing. Can has not figured out where he is supposed to be yet.

3:10 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

He may doing the Can Can.

3:11 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Good afternoon, RD.

3:11 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Welcome, Red Devil!

I agree - I'm thoroughly absorbed so far. Hope you're not to nervous about it and can enjoy it too.

3:11 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Of course a cross is blocked!!!

3:12 PM  
Blogger The Red Devil (1 FCK) said...

Lack of Hummels is really making itself in the German build-up (and we'll have to wait and see what it means not to have him matching up versus Giroud on D).

3:13 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - decent chance there for Muller - he hasn't had his shooting boots on this tournament but I wouldn't bet against him scoring today.

3:14 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Miller misses a chance because it is the Euros not the WC

3:14 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Mueller drags an effort wide off a pass from Can,who received a pass from Kimmich.

3:14 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - Can hit a bobbly volley that nearly beat Lloris. Might have hit the post as well!

3:15 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Great save by Lloris from Can .

3:15 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Cracking atmosphere now - just needs a goal.

3:15 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Mueller with a tame long range effort straight to Lloris.

3:16 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

France were on top but now it's Germany on the up

3:16 PM  
Blogger The Red Devil (1 FCK) said...

Not too nervous. The missing players (and we saw how much that impacted Wales last night) have resulted in casting Germany as the underdog. So, my expectations are not too high. This might be a good time to put in a bet (Germany has played the host 10 times in WC and EC, winning 8 times! Last loss to a host: 1966).

3:17 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - shame that attack was broken up because Pogba played the ball too hot toward Payet. Kimmich did well there.

3:17 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed. A cracking atmosphere in Marseille, the number one football city in France.

3:18 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Good point - we saw how Germany broke Brazilian hearts in callous fashion at Brazil 2012. I can still see those sad samba faces.

3:19 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Well done, Red Devil.That was the answer to my first quiz question.

3:19 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed. Brazil has not recovered from the Muellering.

3:20 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Ref is wearing rather dodgy socks

3:20 PM  
Blogger The Red Devil (1 FCK) said...

This may evolve into a game of control versus counter (Barca-Chelsea) as Germany have calmed down things a bit.

But France is extremely good on the counter with Pogba, Payet, and particularly Griezmann.

3:20 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Germany win a corner.

3:20 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

France seem to have lost the momentum for a time. They may rue not capitalizing on that fast start with a goal. Although, that said, scoring against Germany just seems to irritate them, like shaking a bee hive.

3:20 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Kos heads away the corner.

3:21 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

LOL! I hadn't noticed the ref's socks - nice one, UWS.

3:21 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Useless by Sussoko

3:21 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Germans appeal for a penalty for Pogba's challenge. The Italian ref isn't having it.

3:21 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Props asking for a penalty off the challenge from Pogba. As if he will get that call from an Italian red after what happened Saturday.

3:22 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Ozil should have shot but went wide
Matt says Ozil never shoots

3:23 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Me too. The birthday boy has extra eyes.

3:24 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

France have a decent free kick chance now - Payet over it....

3:24 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Pig Stick fouls Payet in free kick territory.

3:24 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Payet opportunity

3:24 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Decent hit by Payet but Neuer followed by instructions of making sure to cover the left side that Payet seems to favor.

3:25 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Easily saved

3:26 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Germany win a corner by doing the Can Can .It's taken short and a Props cross is headed away.

3:27 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - great attacking sequence with a volley from Ozil and finally a bender from Pigstick, tipped over by Lloris.

3:27 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Lloris tips over a long range effort from the Pig Stick. He catches the corner.

3:28 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I hope whoever wins this crush the Portus

3:28 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Germany look set to continue their streak against host nations in major tournaments.

3:29 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I agree, UWS

3:29 PM  
Blogger The Red Devil (1 FCK) said...

Good game now, with more chances than Italy-Germany or last night.

3:30 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I Griezmann passes to Jorgie Low

3:30 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

More than both matches combined.

3:31 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Which is better? A Kroos cross or a Kroos shot?

3:32 PM  
Blogger The Red Devil (1 FCK) said...

Hector is from the part of Germany I was visiting (Saarland). He plays for the lowest octane club of all the players on the field (Cologne). He's nothing special, but the folks were going nuts when he buried the last PK.

3:32 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - how did Germany miss out on a shot on goal there. Great cross over by Kimmich!

3:33 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The final touch eludes Mueller as France desperately clear off a great pass from Kimmich. Umtiti with the clearance.

3:34 PM  
Blogger The Red Devil (1 FCK) said...

Germany is getting some header chances. Wish Gomez could be at the end of some of those.

3:34 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

What a story. That victory must have smelled better than any cologne imaginable.

3:35 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I can imagine - that must have been a nail-biter for you and the crowd. I can't remember that number of Germans missing penalties.

3:35 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Agreed. Super Mario would bury those.

3:35 PM  
Blogger The Red Devil (1 FCK) said...

Lloris has been solid. His experience in the EPL has made him very confident coming out for crosses.

3:35 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Why was Gomez dropped?

3:35 PM  
Blogger The Red Devil (1 FCK) said...

Can still the weak leak. Let's see what the French can do with this kick.

3:36 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

He's out injured for the rest of tourney

3:37 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Erme Can is the first player into the referee's book. Free kick France here.

3:37 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Pugnacious was mullered in midfield then Can is booked for a foul on Griezmann and being calmed down by Mueller.

3:37 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Can Can needs to get out of refs face

3:37 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I've never fancied Can either when playing for Pool. A really average player.

3:37 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Pogba to take it
Just as weak as Payet

3:38 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Pogba hits it straight at Neuer. Easy.

3:38 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Pogba takes it this time and it's straight to Neuer.

3:38 PM  
Blogger The Red Devil (1 FCK) said...

Gomez was injured versus italy. His tourney is done. That's why, with him and Khedira injured and Hummels barred, Germany is missing 3 key cogs.

Hummels as defensive distributor, Khedira covers more ground than Schweini, and without Gomez, no aerial threat.

3:38 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Lloris easily saves from Mueller after being gifted possession by Matuidi.

3:40 PM  
Blogger The Red Devil (1 FCK) said...

Griezmann is starting to come for the ball deeper, realizing that he is the most dangerous player, particularly when he is running at the D.

3:40 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Despite that, Germany is playing really well.

3:41 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

From the Guardian blog:

"“What would be the french for ‘Can we have our ball back please, mister’? Perhaps ‘pouvons-nous avoir notre balle s’il vous plait, monsieur’? Or should they be asking in German so their opponents can easily understand?” wonders David Wall."

3:41 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Why is Schweiny so good for Germany but pants for United

3:42 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Into the side netting by Griezmann off a pass by Evra. Umtiti started the attack

3:42 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Superb tackle by Howedes on Ollie on the counter. He took too long to shoot.

3:43 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Giroud was clean through but he ran as if wading through treacle and allowed Boateng to get back.

Evra is booked.

3:44 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Evra booked for a foul on Kroos.

3:44 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Why didn't Can attack that cross from Kimmich more aggressively? It was set up for him perfectly!

3:44 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

My apologies to Howedes - it was he who got back to challenge Giroud - superb defending.

3:45 PM  
Blogger The Red Devil (1 FCK) said...

Soft card for Evra.

Boateng is not as good in the air as his size suggests (he is very fast for such a tall guy). We saw that as he was beaten there by Giroud, who should have squared to Griezmann.

3:45 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Boateng's mistiming allowed Ollie through. That's a fine mess he got into.

3:46 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Penalty!!!
No one appealed

3:46 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Is this a penalty? It is! Extraordinary scenes at the Stade Vello.

3:47 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

That seems very harsh to me. I don't see it.

3:47 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

He did stick his hand out and Giroud did appeal
Greezy to take

3:47 PM  
Blogger The Red Devil (1 FCK) said...

what are the Germans doing on those hand-ball headers?

3:47 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Hector clears a cross from Evra for a corner then the Pig Stick is called for hand ball off the corner. It's a penalty and looks the right call.

3:47 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

1-0

3:47 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Griezmann can notch his fifth here....

And does! Good penalty, completely wrong footing Neuer.

The hosts take the lead. Sorry, Red Devil - that was harsh.

3:48 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Last kick of half

3:48 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Excellent time to score - France go in a goal to the good and that change the half-time dressing room talks entirely.

3:48 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

GOAL!Griezmann scores from the spot sending Neuer the wrong way and it's 1-0 at the half.

3:49 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

GOAL!Griezmann scores from the spot sending Neuer the wrong way and it's 1-0 at the half.

3:50 PM  
Blogger The Red Devil (1 FCK) said...

If I don't make it back for the second half, do not interpret it as a sign that I have offed myself. The girls are unfortunately both sick, so I will be heavily involved in getting them to bed.

I hope Germany can turn things around, but they will really miss Gomez on that count (it's a shame Schweinsteiger is playing. Even with Khedira out, I would have played Weigl).

4:00 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The second half is underway from the Velly Drome.

4:04 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

We're back on at the Stade Velodrome now. That penalty award was mighty harsh but it has set things up nicely for the second half.

4:04 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Give the girls a hug for us, Red Devil.

4:05 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Sorry to hear that. I hope your daughters get well soon.

4:05 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Another fast start from the French - they're trying to kill this one off.

4:05 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - Griezmann nearly scored a second - deflected out by Boateng.

4:05 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Ollie takes an eternity to shoot again after being put through by Pugnacious then Griezmann has a shot blocked for a corner. It's eventually cleared.

4:06 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Not a great tournament for Schweinsteiger. No goals scored. Missed a penalty in the quarters and now has given away a penalty in the semis.

4:06 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Germany have handed France the lead and the hand ball from the Pig Stick really stunk.

4:07 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Now it's Draxler into the book - these cards are building up for the Germans.

Can, Schweinsteiger, Ozil and now Draxler.

4:09 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Draxler is booked for a foul from behind on Sissokho.

4:09 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

The Germans are pressing their claim but the French defense has been resolute.

4:14 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

I can't afford this going to extra time
I have to leave to coach a game with Tom and Matt

4:15 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Boateng is limping off injured and will have to be substituted.

4:18 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Another German crocked

4:18 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

A sad end to Boateng's tournament, as he's carried off. Mustaphi on for him.

4:18 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Mustafi is on for Boateng

4:20 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Koz has a looping header just clear the bar.

4:21 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Ollie pressures Hectors to concede a corner. Taken by Griezmann and headed over by Kos.

4:22 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Payet is down holding his head,but gets up and play resumes.

4:24 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Wee Goetze is on for Can,who did not.

4:25 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Mario Gotye is about to come on for Can - good move there. I wish more managers would understand that they don't need defensive midfielders when they're chasing a match. You need goals!

4:25 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Payet worked his way into a shooting chance there but then scuffed his shot.

4:26 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Payet with a tame short easily gathered by Payet.

4:26 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Umtiti tackles Frazier for a corner.

4:27 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A complete waste as the Germans are called for holding.

4:28 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Sissokho fouls Kroos in free kick territory.

4:29 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The free kick from Paul is headed over and Kante is on for Payet.

4:29 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

GOAL! Griezmann sticks the dagger in with a brace.

France 2-0 up!

4:30 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Two nil
That man again
Tom is thrilled
Made by Pogba

4:31 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

GOAL! Griezmann with his and France's second as they were gifted the goal.

4:31 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

What the hell were the Germans doing

4:31 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

It was, in truth a fairly jammy goal from a Keystone Kops sequence but Griezmann was in the right spot to stab home.

Six goals now and surely the Golden Boot of France 2016.

4:31 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - off the post from Kimmich - great bender. Beat Lloris all ways to Sunday. Unlucky.

4:32 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

An unusual comedy of errors from the Germans. First, Kimmich had his pocket picked by Pigba,whose cross was flapped at by Neuer and Griezmann easily tapped in.

4:33 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - Pogba tries one with the outside of his right boot.

4:33 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Kante picks up another yellow - his third of the tournament.

4:33 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Tom is thrilled with his golden boot
He is still really confused about who would win between him and John
They are tied

4:34 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Kimmich tries to make ammends as his long range effort comes off the post. Then Pogba shoots just wide.

4:34 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - now Draxler hits a free kick just wide - it's all happening now. This one isn't over yet by half.

4:34 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Draxler curls a free kick just wide. Kante was booked for a foul on Evra.

4:35 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Why is the Mexican coming on
Where's Martial

4:36 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Gignac,who plays for Tigres in Mexico, is on for Ollie France may celebrate a win with some Cognac

4:37 PM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

Boy that was close

4:37 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

LeRoy Sagne is on for the Pig Stick. He nearly scored as his shot was deflected for a corner and Mustafi blasted over.

4:38 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

France win a corner that is headed away by Kimmich.

4:39 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Deschamps seems to favor Gignac - I don't get it.

4:40 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - Howedes was inches away from getting one back.

4:41 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Howedes heads a free kick from Kroos inches over. It was a free header.

4:41 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Is he thinking of Cognac?

4:42 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Great run and cross by Matiudi there but no one was following in.

4:42 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Never count the Germans out until the final whistle.

4:44 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Is this the same Sissokho that played for the Toon this past season?

4:44 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - Griezmann did well there but was perhaps a bit greedy, looking for his hat-trick. Gignac not pleased.

4:45 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

It is - doubt whether he'll line up for Newcastle against Fulham in the Championship in a month's time.

4:45 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The speedy Griezmann gets past the Germans, but shoots right at Neuer.

4:45 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I doubt it. Now that he's auditioning for a new club, he shows commitment.

4:46 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Neuer easily saves from Cognac.

4:47 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Are the Germans getting Mullered?

4:48 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Four minutes of stoppage time. The locals are not pleased.

4:49 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The final roll of the dice for Des Champs as Cabaye of Palace is on for Griezmann.

4:50 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - Lloris with a brilliant header to maintain the clean sheet!

4:51 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Hugo Lloris for Golden Glove now?

4:51 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Oh! A world class save by Lloris from a header by Kimmich off a cross from Mustafi.

4:52 PM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I think I picked him, mate.

4:52 PM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

They think it's all over....

It is now!!!

France into the final. They do love winning tournaments at home.
