Manuel Neuer laments Germany's loss against France


The world champions were undone by the tournament hosts, Antoine Griezmann’s brace taking his tally to five as Die Maanschaft were sent home.

German shot-stopper Neuer was understandably disappointed, and feels like his side deserved more.

"We've played well during Euro 2016 but have been knocked out and that is very disappointing," he said via the German Football Association (DFB) website.

"It's a semi-final, there weren't any stupid moments or silly mistakes. It's not a fair result. It's disappointing to go in at the break trailing as we did.

"Nevertheless, we still had the chance to bounce back but simply couldn’t score. They were clinical.

"If it had been 0-0 at the break, that wouldn't have happened. After France took a 1-0 lead, it was easier for them."

France take on Portugal in the tournament’s final on Sunday evening.
