Loew's job under threat as France beat Germany — UEFA Nations League

Griezmann the field general Five things learned as France add to Germany’s woes

Germany are bottom on one point after failing to register a win in the competition so far following their draw with France and a humbling 3-0 defeat to the Netherlands at the weekend.

Yet without Griezmann making the difference on Tuesday, and the telling contribution of second-half substitute Kylian Mbappe against Iceland, France would have perhaps been faced with their first defeat since March.

France now top Group 1 in League A with seven points from three matches while Germany are yet to win a match in their Nations League campaign after three games.

Lloris did make a vital intervention in the 24th minute, however, denying Matthias Ginter from close range, with France only clicking in attack at the end of the half when Olivier Giroud turned Lucas Hernandez's low cross over the goal.

The hosts finally pulled level just after the hour mark when Antoine Griezmann produced a bullet header from a Lucas Hernandez cross to beat Manuel Neuer.

Griezman clinically slotted the spot kick in the 80th minute but the Germans were not impressed as Mats Hummels was penalised, even though Blaise Matuidi seemed to be the guilty party.

Sam is known for his "Western" voice and there is an in-joke in the film where he accuses his brother of stealing his voice. Bradley Cooper - rugged, normally drunk and talented as-can-be, takes on the role of smooth-talking rock star Jack.

The French attack looked lost for most of the first 45 minutes as their star players struggled to get into the game.

"But the penalty was totally unjustified". It was Matuidi who stepped on his foot and slipped, so this penalty was totally unfair.

Atletico Madrid star Griezmann admitted the first half against Germany "was much like how we played against Iceland. It was a very, very good performance and something to build on for the future". "I think we were disrupted by them playing three at the back, so we had to calmly speak a bit in the dressing and change two or three things tactically", Griezmann told French television.

"We weren't ourselves, either in the one-on-ones or in terms of the efforts we made for each other".

"We should not be disappointed tonight after such a performance", said Loew, who has been under pressure since his side's World Cup flop in June.
