France gaffer, Didier Deschamps was full of praise for Antoine Griezmann, as he helped France to the final of the Euro 2016.
The Atletico Madrid forward scored a brace in the semifinal clash against Germany. With the host nation making it to the final on a clean sheet.
The forward, who has six goals in the tournament is the highest goalscorer at the Euro 2016.
Asked about Griezmann’s exploits, Deschamps said: “He’s a great player and he proved that against Germany, he works very hard, along with Olivier Giroud from a defensive perspective he made us a very compact unit.
“He has this speed and technical ability, he had a few chances.
“He’s a very important player just as he has been with Atletico Madrid throughout the season.”
Griezmann’s six goals at a single European Championship is bettered only by countryman Michel Platini’s nine-goal haul at Euro 1984, while the 25-year-old has now scored as many goals for France at the Euros as Thierry Henry (six).
