Les Bleus got another three points while Germanys struggles continue

On the road, Germany was able to get an opening goal 14 minutes in from Toni Kroos thanks to a penalty kick, but the team threatened little after that. Griezmann got both of his goals in the final half an hour to earn the three points.

The first, on 62 minutes, was a lovely header to the far post:

As it stands in League A Group, France is first with seven points while Netherlands has three points, and Germany has just one point from three games. The Germans look like a likely candidate to be relegated to League B with one more game to go — a must-win match against the Netherlands on Nov. 19.
