Managerless Germany beat France in friendly


Antoine Griezmann of France looks dejected following the team's defeat during the International Friendly match between Germany and France at Signal Iduna Park on September 12, 2023 in Dortmund, Germany.

Germany gained a home friendly victory over France in their first match since the sacking of German boss Hansi Flick.

Ex-striker Rudi Voller was in interim charge, with Flick dismissed following the 4-1 loss to Japan on Saturday.

Bayern Munich forwards Thomas Muller and Leroy Sane scored the goals for the hosts in a match played at Borussia Dortmund's Signal Iduna Park stadium.

Antoine Griezmann netted a late penalty for France after Sane fouled Eduardo Camavinga, but it was not enough.

It was France's first defeat since they were beaten on penalties by Argentina in the 2022 World Cup final in December.

Meanwhile, Germany, who went out in the group stage in Qatar, won for only the second time in seven matches in 2023.

They are the Euro 2024 hosts, therefore do not need to qualify, and are only playing international friendlies this year.

Germany play the United States away on 14 October, before another friendly in the US, against Mexico, on 18 October.
