France hung on in the first half tonight in the semifinals of Euro 2016 when they were outclassed by Germany, but then a rather stupid penalty was given away by Bastian Schweinsteiger just before half time as he handled the ball from a corner.
Antoine Griezmann scored for the penalty spot and that turned the game.
Then Griezmann got a second goal in the second half after sloppy defending from Germany and after that the Germans just couldn’t score and looked frustrated against a France team that defended very well.
Moussa Sissoko played well against Germany
Moussa Sissoko had another good game and his value will have gone up in the transfer market and even more so if he starts in the final on Sunday against Portugal and France are favorites to win and become European Champions.
And just case anybody didn’t know our commentator for the game Ian Dark on ESPN said a few times that Moussa wants to leave Newcastle this summer.
Here are some tweets from Newcastle fans after the match – and some of the frustration comes out because he hardly played like that for Newcastle last season.

Have more hatred for Sissoko now after he’s shown what he can actually do playing for France. Just shows how little he cares about us #NUFC

Sissoko can play as well as he likes! I still don’t want him anywhere near our first team again #nufc

All jokes aside is Rafa Benitez not the type of manager that could get those type of performances from Moussa Sissoko every week? #NUFC
