Antoine Griezmann has found the net in style! France faced Bulgaria this evening at the Stade de France in Paris. They’re a strong outfit, having defeated Wales 3-0 last Wednesday, and took a 29th minute lead on the night through Barcelona forward Antoine Griezmann; the flamboyant marksman scored a lovely chilena, or bicycle kick, before celebrating with customary style.
Griezmann forms an enviable front three alongside Kylian Mbappe and Karim Benzema, so talented they keep Kingsley Coman and Ousmane Dembele out of the starting lineup.
In midfield, the heartbeat of the team, they boast a partnership of Paul Pogba and N’Golo Kante, while they have talent and depth that perhaps no other can match.
Coming into Euro 2020 off the back of their World Cup-winning trip to Russia in 2018, they’ll be fancying their chances of escaping an admittedly tough group featuring themselves, Portugal, Germany and Hungary.
The Frenchman reacted to Kylian Mbappe’s deflection and opted to go for a stunning bicycle kick. The deflected ball went between the sticks.

Griezmann is scoring his second goal in a few days. Last time out, he found the net against Wales. The Frenchman received a backheel pass from Kylian Mbappe and found the left upper corner shooting from the penalty line.
