Match Preview

France have played West Germany three times at the World Cup Finals.

France won the third-place match (6:3) in Gothenburg at Sweden 1958; lost the Seville semi-final on penalties (3:3aet 4:5pens)  at Spain 1982; and lost the Guadalajara semi-final (0:2) at Mexico 1986.

The Match

This is only the quarter-final, so France might be in with a chance.

Goalscorers 0:1
That was until the 12th minute, when Mats Hummels beat Raphael Varane to a Toni Kroos free-kick and headed over Hugo Lloris.

France were in with a chance in the 34th minute but Karim Benzema's scramble effort was tipped over. France then failed to make anything from two consecutive corners.

Although the French attack wasn't firing on all cylinders, Hugo Lloris kept France in the game; saving with his feet with ten minutes to go.

Substitution With Loic Remy already on the pitch in place of Yohan Cabaye, Didier Deschamps tried a final roll of the dice; Olivier Giroud on for Mathieu Valbuena.

Four minutes were added on.

Karim Benzema came close in the final seconds but Manuel Neuer palmed his rising shot away.

Not a great game of football but the Germans will be happy enough with the result and another game in the semi-finals.
