Spain predicted they would be the best team at the Euro before the tournament started, and it seems they were right! Only the final awaits them now!

The first semi-final match of Euro 2024 featured a clash between Spain and France, with the European powerhouses facing off. The match began better for Les Bleus in the first half. The Spaniards started livelier, and in the fifth minute, Fabian Ruiz should have scored when he had a free header from close range but aimed too high. On the other hand, the French scored in the 8th minute.

We saw a quality action initiated by Kylian Mbappe's cross into the middle, and the goal was finished by striker Kolo Muani.

The Paris Saint-Germain player headed the ball into the net, poorly marked by defender Laporte - 1:0. However, it didn't take long for Spain to bounce back in the 21st minute with one of the most beautiful goals of the tournament; Lamine Yamal scored from distance to make it 1:1!

Four minutes later, Spain took the lead when Dani Olmo struck, and French defender Jules Kounde deflected the ball into his own net, making it 2:1 for La Roja at halftime. Both teams showed their teeth early in the second half, but the score remained unchanged in the opening minutes. Spain continued to dictate the rhythm.

In the 62nd minute, France needed a spark, and coach Deschamps brought on Camavinga, Griezmann, and the young talent Barcola. A minute later, Upamecano had a good chance with a header but failed to score, and it remained 2:1.

France had another opportunity in the 76th minute when Hernandez had a good shot from the edge of the box, but he hit it too hard. A few minutes later, Deschamps introduced veteran Olivier Giroud. On the other side, Yamal threatened again but was not accurate enough this time. Time was running out for France.

In the final minutes of regular time, Mbappe had a poor shot, and France couldn't find an equalizer; Spain advanced to the grand final!
