Euro 2016

France booked their place in the Euro 2016 final on Thursday night with a convincing 2-0 win over Germany and among those who shined was Atletico Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann.

The 25-year-old put two past Germany’s Manuel Neuer on the night, first from the penalty spot following a handball by Bastian Schweinsteiger and then a second following some magic from Manchester United target Paul Pogba.

The tap-in marked Griezmann’s sixth goal of the tournament, but his goal celebrations are also catching the attention of thise watching at home and where exactly the Frenchman got it from.

“That’s a dance from the video to Drake’s Hotline Bling,” Griezmann said about the celebrations(via Daily Mail).

“I’ve been doing it when I score for Atletico and I should have done it when I scored against Albania, but the emotion was too much and I forgot about.

“The same thing happened when I equalised against Ireland. For the second goal, I remembered[It].”

France will face a stubborn Portugal side inside the Stade de France this Sunday, with Griezmann looking to add to his impressive tally.
