FRANCE will look to beat Germany in a competitive fixture for the first time in 58 years when they face off in the semi-final of Euro 2016 tonight.
The hopes of a nation rest firmly on France’s shoulders as they look to avenge their 2014 World Cup quarter-final heartbreak at the hands of Germany in Brazil.
Moussa Sissoko was an unused substitute two years ago, but he admits revenge is top of his side’s agenda heading into the match in Marseille.
Speaking at a press conference, he said: “We want to win at all costs in order to qualify. Being knocked out in the quarters at the last World Cup still sticks in the throat.
“We have a calmer team than two years ago and we’ve had good results. We now need to prove ourselves on the field. Today, on paper, is the biggest game of the tournament.”
And it is France who come into the tie in better form, following their 5-2 thrashing of Iceland in the quarter-final.
