Germany coach Joachim Low was left to rue the goal scoring opportunities wasted by his side in the wake of their Euro2016 semi-final defeat to France.
Low claimed that his side were the better team on the day despite the 2-0 defeat to the hosts in the final four in Marseille.
"We were the better team. We put in a lot of effort, showed good body language, got forward and were good in one-on-ones," the Germany boss said after Antoine Griezmann's brace sent his side packing.
"We were unfortunate to concede a penalty a minute before half-time, that was bad luck.
"We had our chances but didn't score. Today we didn't have the luck we needed; in 2010 and 2012 when we went out, the sides were better than us.
"Today we were better than the French but for the goals and result. The side did everything I told them, showed a lot of courage so there's nothing to reproach them for.
"This was a good tournament for us. I haven't seen too many errors from us. Overall, we have a great side."
