Dani Olmo sends Spain past France and into UEFA Euro 2024 final

Spain 2-1 France
Goals: 0-1
Kolo Muani 8' (assist: Mbappé), 1-1 Yamal 21', 2-1 Olmo 25'

Winners on penalties against Portugal in the previous round, France had reached the last four without scoring from open play. That changed with just eight minutes on the clock, when Kylian Mbappé crossed for former Eintracht Frankfurt forward Randall Kolo Muani to head home at the back post. Spain responded brilliantly, though, scoring twice in the space of four first-half minutes. Lamine Yamal found top bins with a gorgeous 18-yard strike, before Olmo skilfully found the bottom corner off the unwitting Jules Koundé. France left-back Theo Hernández blazed over when well placed, while Yamal fired off target following another trademark inside run. Mbappé spurned a chance of his own making with the clock ticking down as Spain advanced to face the winner of the other semi-final between the Netherlands and England in the final in Berlin on 14 July.
