The Manager of the German National team, Joachim Low has blamed luck for his team’s semifinal loss to host nation, France on Thursday.

“In 2012 or 2010 when we went out, the other sides were better than us. Today that wasn’t the case. We were better than the French.

“We were the better team. We had good body language. We were good in the one-on-one, it was unfortunate that we conceded the goal.

“The side did everything I told them. We had a lot of courage. There’s nothing to blame them for.

“We had our chances. Regretfully we didn’t score. We didn’t have the luck we needed.” he said.

Meanwhile, France manager Didier Deschamps, expressed his delight for his players who overcame “the best side” to book a place in the final against Portugal.

The Best side

“I’m delighted for the players. It was a tough game against a team that made us suffer but we suffered together.

“We haven’t only had easy games, Germany were and are still the best side.

We did what we needed to do. We were clinical, and Lloris was great when we needed him to be. France Manger stated.

Talking on the final showdown with Portugal, Deschamps said being the host nation and defeating Germany doesn’t give them extra edge over Portugal.

He said the final showdown is going to be a 50-50 match.

“We are in a final, we have our chance and Portugal has their chance too.

It’s not because we’re hosts and have knocked out Germany that gives us extra power.

France forward, Antoine Griezmann scored twice to send France to the final of the Euro 2016 where they would play Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal on Sunday. (
