[Video] France 2-1 Romania: Giroud scores as Payet stunner wins it

By on June 10, 2016

Arsenal’s Olivier Giroud was on target as France kicked Euro 2016 off with a hard fought 2-1 win over Romania tonight.

Giroud looked to be having another frustrating evening as he missed a number of chances with the first half ending scoreless at 0-0.

However, the Gunners hitman showed his resilience after opening the scoring with a brave header in the 57th minute.

Romania levelled things up less than 10 minutes later after Patrice Evra conceded a penalty with Stancu making no mistake for 1-1.

It looked likes the hosts were going to be held to a frustrating draw but West Ham attacker Dimitri Payet stepped up to smash home a stunner in the 89th minute to win it for the hosts.
