Twitter reacts as France beat Germany in enthralling Euro 2020 contest

France defeated Germany 1-0 on Tuesday night, in what was a predictably enthralling encounter in Munich.

The game got off a disjointed start with each team pressing manically, though not always successfully. After a few half-chances went begging France took the lead 20 minutes in courtesy of a rather amusing own goal from Mats Hummels.

A sumptuous Paul Pogba pass was key in the build-up, making up for a header he missed a few minutes earlier.

As for Hummels, well, not a lot of people were feeling sympathetic towards the Borussia Dortmund man. Other than me, actually…

Before half-time Twitter was aflame again. This time it wasn’t an own goal that caused the uproar, though.

Instead people were discussing whether Antonio Rudiger had taken a bite out of Pogba’s neck. Yes, you have read that right.

Just when we thought we might have had enough madness for one half, a Greenpeace activist decided to parachute into the Allianz Arena.

Thankfully, no one was hurt, which meant everyone could turn the event into a meme on social media.

The second half was quieter than the first but there was still plenty to discuss in the Twittersphere, particularly after France had two goals disallowed in a matter of minutes…

Those two decisions meant the game only finished 1-0 to France, but the consensus on Twitter was that Germany were lucky to get away with such a generous scoreline.

While Germany underwhelmed, Les Bleus look like they will take some stopping. But, but, but, I thought it was coming home.
