These two powerhouses from soccer met in a friendly in November of last year and it was France with the 2-0 home victory. In World Cup 2014 they met in the quarterfinal round with Germany earning the 1-0 victory with a goal coming early in the 13th minute. They followed that result with a 7-1 victory to Brazil in the semifinals and a 1-0 victory to Argentina in the final. Germany has competed in four straight World Cup semifinal games and it is a current record. In Euro 2016 the Germans have four wins and one draw thus far. In the Round of 16 the team defeated Slovakia 3-0. They then battled Italy in the quarterfinal round and Germany needed the penalty kick round to earn the win. The game ended at 1-1 after regulation and extra time. It was a scoreless tie at the half until Germany took the 1-0 lead in the 65th minute with a goal by Mesut Ozil. Italy got the equalizer in minute 78 on a penalty kick. After no further scoring the teams went into the penalty pick round. It was a crazy round as each team missed three of their first five attempts. In kick 9 Jonas Hector scored to make it 6-5 in favor of Germany and a miss by Italy’s Matteo Darmian sent the Italions back home.

France faced the surprise of the tournament in Iceland in the quarterfinals. The French dominated the game taking a 4-0 lead after the first 45 minutes that ended with a 5-2 final score. The host nation got two goals from Oliver Giroud in the victory. Iceland had a letdown in the quarterfinal round as the team upset England in the Round of 16 by a 2-1 score.
