Dimitri Payet was the star of the show, as France got Euro 2016 underway, with a 2-1 win over Romania on Friday.
The hosts struggled to break down the East Europeans in the first half, which ended goalless. But they Olivier Giroud got on the end of Payet’s cross to open scoring early in the second half.
Patrice Evra was punished for a foul inside the area and Bogdan Stancu stepped up to equalize from the spot.
Payet had the final say, as he curled in a stunning effort in the dying moments of the game, to send the entire nation into a frenzy.
