Video: Griezmann Double Sinks The Irish | The Fans Daily


Copa90 continue their great coverage of the Euros as the tournament enters its business end. The format of the video is one regular viewers of the channel have become accustomed to. The emotions of the fans watching their teams play is portrayed as their respective fortunes ebb and flow. In this particular iteration of The Fans Daily, the focus is mainly on the home nation as they take on the Republic of Ireland, Germany vs Slovakia and the match up between Belgium and Hungary.

Most of the video focused on France vs Republic of Ireland, rightly so given the drama and intensity of the events that unfolded. The underdogs took a shock lead very early in the piece as Robbie Brady calmly slotted in from the spot to silence, at least temporarily, the stadium and indeed an entire nation. The Irish side fought tooth and nail and went into the break with an unlikely lead.

However, France were odds on favourites according to the best betting sites and wave after wave of attack led to the seemingly inevitable equalizer. Much has been made of Olivier Giroud and whether he is capable of leading the line for France but there’s little doubt about the importance of Antoine Griezmann to the French cause. Dimitri Payet may have grabbed the early tournament headlines but in the first knockout round it was all about the Atleti hit man.

An impeccably timed run into the box was followed by a powerful header which sailed past Darren Randolph to level the game. The Irish were further pegged back as a perfectly weighed knock on from the aforementioned Giroud gave Griezmann a sight of goal and the latter made no mistake. He could have had a hattrick if not for Shane Duffy bringing him down when he was clean through on goal but that pales into insignificance when it comes to the bigger picture. If France are to go all the way, one feels that Griezmann will have a big role to play.
