Euro 2024: Spain stage remarkable comeback against France to reach final

Spain have booked their place in the Euro 2024 final after a thrilling 2-1 win over France in Munich on Tuesday night.

The win extends Spain’s perfect record in the tournament, making it six wins from six matches so far.

Yamal emotional after scoring the equaliser for Spain – From Fabrizio Romano

Lamine Yamal, 16, made history by becoming the youngest ever scorer in European Championship finals.

The Barcelona winger collected the ball 25 yards out and curled an unstoppable shot past Mike Maignan, bringing Spain level in fine fashion.

Spain then took the lead four minutes later when Dani Olmo pounced on a loose ball inside France’s box.

His powerful strike, deflected by Jules Kounde, flew past Maignan. Initially credited to Kounde as an own-goal, UEFA later awarded the goal to Olmo.

Spain dominated the first half, but France came back stronger in the second period, pressing for an equalizer.

Kylian Mbappe had the best chance for France, but his shot soared over the crossbar after leaving substitute Dani Vivian behind.

However, Spain held on to their lead, securing their place in the final, and would wait to know their opponents after England vs Netherlands match on Wednesday.
