Spain vs France Euro 2024: UEFA Euro Cup 2024 Semi-Final: Spain vs France Live Score
As we reach the critical phase of Euro 2024, two top contenders, Spain and France, are set to face off in the semi-final, vying for a spot in the final. Spain has been the standout team of the tournament, maintaining an unbeaten streak and winning all their matches thus far. In their latest triumph, they ousted hosts Germany in the quarterfinal. The Spanish squad, featuring a remarkable 16-year-old talent, Lamine Yamal, has been impressive, with Yamal contributing three assists so far.
On the other hand, France has been struggling to find their rhythm, with their star player Kylian Mbappe yet to score from open play in the tournament. Antoine Griezmann, another key player, has also failed to leave his mark. Despite this, France has managed to reach the last four without scoring a goal from open play.

Spain’s manager, Luis de la Fuente, reaffirmed his commitment to their signature entertaining football for the semi-final against France. Meanwhile, Didier Deschamps’ French side has yet to impress with their style of play. Deschamps confirmed that Mbappe will participate in the match at Munich Football Arena, despite his recent struggles with fatigue and a painful blow to his face in the quarterfinal against Portugal. Mbappe, who has been playing with a mask due to a broken nose suffered at the start of the tournament, looked less effective after the injury.

Deschamps explained at Monday’s pre-match press conference, “He came off after 110 minutes in a tough game. There was no point in keeping him on the pitch while he was tired.”

Spain, boasting five straight wins in Euro 2024, will be without several key players in Munich. Midfielder Pedri is out after a knee injury sustained in a clash with Germany’s Toni Kroos. The dramatic 2-1 win over Germany, secured by Mikel Merino’s header in the 119th minute, also resulted in 16 bookings, including a yellow card for centre back Robin Le Normand and a red for fullback Dani Carvajal, both of whom are suspended for Tuesday’s game.
Real Madrid defender Nacho is set to replace Le Normand at centre back, partnering with Aymeric Laporte, while 38-year-old fullback Jesus Navas, the last player from Spain’s golden generation that won the 2010 World Cup and consecutive Euro titles in 2008 and 2012, will take Carvajal’s place.

Spain vs France: Start time, team news, stream info

  • Kick-off time: 9pm local time / 8pm BST / 3pm EDT / 12pm PDT
  • TV/stream info: BBC (UK), Fox (US)

Spain line-up: Simon; Navas, Nacho, Laporte, Cucurella; Rodri, Fabian; Yamal, Olmo, Williams; Morata.

France line-up: Maignan; Kounde, Upamecano, Saliba, Hernandez; Tchouameni, Kante, Rabiot; Dembele, Kolo Muani, Mbappe.

Spain: Starting XI

Spain vs France Euro 2024: Dermot Corrigan confirmed this earlier — Spain taking the Real Madrid approach to dropping team news almost arrogantly early — but here again is the starting XI named by Luis de la Fuente to take on France:

  • Goalkeeper: Unai Simon (Athletic Bilbao)
  • Defenders: Jesus Navas (Sevilla), Nacho (Real Madrid), Aymeric Laporte (Al Nassr), Marc Cucurella (Chelsea)
  • Midfielders: Rodri (Manchester City), Fabian Ruiz (PSG)
  • Forwards: Lamine Yamal (Barcelona), Dani Olmo (RB Leipzig), Nico Williams (Athletic Bilbao)
  • Striker: Alvaro Morata Capt (Atletico Madrid)

Navas and Nacho come in for the suspended Carvajal and Le Normand, while Olmo replaces the injured Pedri.

France: Starting XI

The teams are ready in Munich. Here is the France starting XI from Didier Deschamps to take on Spain:

  • Goalkeeper: Mike Maignan (AC Milan)
  • Defenders: Jules Kounde (Barcelona), Dayot Upamecano (Bayern Munich), William Saliba (Arsenal), Theo Hernandez (AC Milan)
  • Midfielders: N’Golo Kante (Al Ittihad), Aurelien Tchouameni (Real Madrid), Adrien Rabiot (Juventus)
  • Forwards: Ousmane Dembele (PSG), Kylian Mbappe Capt (PSG), Randal Kolo Muani (PSG)

The big news is that Antoine Griezmann drops to the bench. Rabiot returns after suspension, replacing Eduardo Camavinga, and Dembele is restored to the starting XI.

Magic Mike Solves a Potential Problem

Mike Maignan has been one of the standout goalkeepers at the tournament, with his saves preventing around four goals above average. For a team that lost Hugo Lloris after the 2022 World Cup, this could have easily become a problematic position for Deschamps. However, France’s depth of talent ensures they can always find quality replacements, as evidenced by their strong under-21 team.The question remains whether they have resolved their No. 9 issues, with Kolo Muani starting once again.

Jesus Navas Wins 55th Spain Cap

Jesus Navas earns his 55th cap for Spain tonight, nearly 15 years after his debut. Navas was part of Spain’s World Cup 2010 and Euro 2012 winning squads while at Sevilla. However, his stint at Manchester City saw him drift out of the national scene, missing the 2014, 2018, and 2022 World Cups, as well as Euro 2016 and Euro 2020.

De la Fuente recalled Navas for the Nations League finals last year, impressed by his character, leadership for younger players, and unwavering crossing ability. Despite occasional struggles against speedy wingers in La Liga and Europa League, Navas now plays in the Euros at 38, facing the challenge of marking Kylian Mbappe, Ousmane Dembele, or both tonight.

France’s Finishing Woes Acknowledged

France have yet to score a goal in open play, but they have been open about their lack of efficiency. Guy Stephan told the France Football Federation:

💬 “It’s true, we have a problem with our finishing. We create a lot of chances with a collective approach, but we can’t finish. We have many shots, both from outside and inside the penalty area. We need to find the right balance to get those shots on target.

“In the last ten matches before the European Championship, we scored 30 or 31 goals, so finishing wasn’t an issue then.

“However, it has been more difficult during this European Championship. Even some great players have gone many games without scoring in the past.

Spain vs France Euro 2024: Live Updates, Team News, Predictions, and Line-ups

Deschamps Sticks with 4-3-3 Formation

Deschamps finally commits to a system, opting for the 4-3-3 formation that France used on matchday three against Poland. Without Griezmann, France may lack central creativity but will pose a significant threat on the wings.

Mbappe and Dembele are formidable one-on-one dribblers, and the team needs to make better use of the left side, having been too reliant on the right for attacks. While Mbappe often grabs the headlines, Theo Hernandez’s crossing is a crucial asset for the team.

France Aiming for Fourth European Championship Final

France is aiming to reach their fourth European Championship final, having previously made it in 1984, 2000, and 2016. Notably, the 1984 and 2016 tournaments were held in France, so this would be only the second time they’ve reached the final outside of their home country.

In comparison, Spain is looking to reach their fifth Euros final, with only Germany having played in more (six). Spain’s semi-final exit to Italy on penalties at Euro 2020 marked the first time they reached the last four without advancing to the final.

Deschamps Eyes Historic Feat in Euro Finals

If France triumphs over Spain today, Didier Deschamps, who led Les Bleus in the Euro 2016 final, will become the third man to manage in two European Championship finals. He joins Helmut Schön (West Germany in 1972 & 1976) and Berti Vogts (Germany in 1992 & 1996) in this exclusive club.

Gareth Southgate could also join this elite group if England beats the Netherlands tomorrow.

Griezmann Dropped in Major France Shake-Up

In a surprising move, France’s vice-captain Antoine Griezmann has been benched for the first time in a knockout match since the 2014 World Cup. Ousmane Dembele replaces him on the right wing in a 4-3-3 formation.

Adrien Rabiot, who was suspended for the quarter-final against Portugal, returns to the midfield alongside Tchouameni and Kante.

Griezmann has struggled with form throughout this tournament, but expectations remain high. It’s a bold decision by Deschamps to leave out his ‘darling,’ who has 134 caps and brings valuable experience.

Team News Coming Soon

With kick-off approaching in Munich, the official team line-ups will be announced shortly. We already know Spain’s starting XI, but France’s line-up remains to be confirmed. Stay tuned for the official team sheets, starting XIs, and in-depth analysis as soon as they’re released. Don’t go anywhere!
