Spain end Germany’s dream and France squeeze past Portugal – Football Daily

Follow Football Weekly wherever you get your podcasts and join the conversation on Facebook, Twitter and email.

On the podcast today: Spain do it in the last minute of extra-time, Mikel Merino’s brilliant header securing their spot in the semi-finals. Florian Wirtz had earned Germany a deserved late equaliser in normal time, but it wasn’t to be for the host nation.

France v Portugal, like most other games involving France or Portugal, was a largely forgettable game, with Cristiano Ronaldo seemingly impossible to substitute no matter how little he offered. Ultimately, France got through on penalties and will face Spain in Munich.

Plus, we look ahead to England’s quarter-final against Switzerland – are rumours of three at the back to be believed? There’s also reviews from the continent and your questions answered.
