On Tuesday night in Stade de France, Antoine Griezmann, The Barcelona forward player, struck the opener after 29 minutes of the game with a lovely bicycle kick that took a deflection on its way past goalkeeper Daniel Naumov, scoring in the team’s 3-0 friendly win over Bulgaria.


Griezmann has scored in France’s last three matches and is heading into the Euros with Les Bleus in some good form.


It was a strong start by France, who then suffered a blow just before half-time when Karim Benzema had to go off after getting a knock.


Barcelona team-mate Ousmane Dembele set up Kylian Mbappe straight after coming on only for the PSG forward to fire a shot wide. As a result, Griezmann ended up going out in the second half, and he replaced him.


The Chelsea striker grabbed the second chance from close range after a cross-in from the right by Benjamin Pavard. Substitute Olivier Giroud made it a 2-0 score to France with seven minutes of average time remaining.


After a quick counter, Giroud struck again in the 90th minute to secure the victory, thrusting home Wissam Ben Yedder’s cross to create a good buy for Didier Deschamps’s side.


France headed into the Euros as one of the loved ones to win the tournament and kick off their crusade on Tuesday with a game against Germany.
