Toni Kroos’ 14th minute spot kick put the visitors ahead in a re match of the UEFA EURO 2016 semi-final,Germany were the best  team in the First half but did not make good use of the chances created

France’s second-half turnaround  was spearheaded by Antoine Griezmann  who equalized with a header before converting a penalty kick to cap the comeback with ten minutes remaining.

Germany had never lost more than 6 games in a calendar year  but that record was broken in the hands of France condemning it to the sixth loss in the past 10 games in 2018.

The Joachim  Löw’s side, who crashed out at the group stage of the World Cup and remain bottom of Nations League Group A1 with one point from three matches now are on the brink of not qualifying to the next round of the Uefa Nations League with France likely to qualify from the group
