Euro2016: Low rues missed Germany chances in France defeat

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."
