Antoine Griezmann 'confident' France can handle Spain in Euro 2024 semi-final

Antoine Griezmann is optimistic about France's chances as they gear up for a monumental showdown against Spain in the Euro 2024 semi-finals.

The stage is set for a clash of titans in Munich, where both teams will battle for a spot in the final.

Les Bleus' journey to the semi-finals has been marked by resilience amidst challenges.

After a lacklustre campaign in Germany where they scored just two goals in the group stages and finished second in Group D, Les Bleus faced a tough path in the knockout rounds.

An own goal against Belgium in the last 16 and a dramatic penalty shootout victory over Portugal in the quarter-finals saw them through to the last four.

In contrast, Spain have been dominant throughout Euro 2024, showcasing impressive form that has set them apart from their rivals.

Griezmann acknowledges Spain's strength but remains confident, citing their collective quality and experience as decisive factors in the upcoming clash.

"Spain have a great team. But no team is scary. We are confident in ourselves and we'll give everything to reach the final," said Griezmann, as per reports from Mundo Deportivo.

"There is one game left to reach the final. It's extraordinary to always be in the top four. We have to enjoy this France team, because they can win."

The match holds additional significance as it marks a rematch of sorts from the 2012 European Championships, where Spain eliminated France in the quarter-finals en route to defending their European title.

Memories of that encounter add an extra layer of motivation for both sides aiming to secure a place in Euro 2024's final showdown.
