​Deschamps delighted with France performance in win over Germany

France boss Didier Deschamps was delighted with his side's 1-0 win over Germany at Euro 2020.

Les Bleus clinched a 1-0 success in their opening group game against the home side.

Despite having the best chances to win, France had to work hard to hold onto the three points by the end of the game.

A Mats Hummels own goal was enough to settle the game in the favour of the reigning World Cup winners.

Speaking to M6, Deschamps said: "We played a great game against very good opponents. I knew my players would be ready and we were up for the fight.

"We weren't far away from scoring the second goal that would have made us safe, but we didn't suffer that much in the second half. It was a strong match with quality and talent."
