It was quite an exciting start to the last four clash with France having a couple of chances at the start
But the Germans clearly dominated the first half with some brilliant performances
Germany had more than 60 percent of the possession in the first half of the game
France goalkeeper Hugo Lloris had a superb day on the pitch, making sure the Germans did not get off the mark
Lloris stood out for his team, making a couple of stunning saves to keep Germany at bay
But just as the first half was about to end, Germany skipper Bastian Schweinsteiger was shown the yellow card
What was worse for the German fans was that it was a penalty!
And Griezmann did not disappoint, putting the ball past Neuer to put France 1-0 up at half-time
Germany coach Joachim Loew had to come out with something extraordinary to stop the French going to the final
But the semifinal kept getting worse for Germany who went on to lose Jerome Boateng to an injury
Meanwhile, Griezmann was at it again and made it 2-0 for the hosts in the 72nd minute
It was tough for the Germans to come back from 2-0 down with only 18 minutes remaining on the clock
Minutes passed by and France entered the final of the continental championship
Griezmann now has six goals from the tournament, three more than anyone else
France will now take on Portugal in the final at Stade de France near Paris on Sunday night.
