Euro 2024: Netherlands vs France -Match Report


The Netherlands and France played out a 0-0 draw in Group D in Leipzig, where an offside controversy took center stage in the absence of Kylian Mbappe.

Xavi Simons appeared to score for the Netherlands late in the game, but the goal was disallowed as Denzel Dumfries was deemed to have influenced the play.

The decision was upheld by video assistant referee Stuart Attwell.

The offside call sparked debate as the ball headed into the net, catching goalkeeper Mike Maignan off guard.

Despite the controversy, English officials ruled out the goal, resulting in the first goalless draw of the tournament.

France, led by Didier Deschamps, controlled the game but failed to convert their chances, with Antoine Griezmann missing the best opportunities.

The draw leaves the Netherlands at the top of Group D, narrowly ahead of France on goal difference.

Poland’s earlier defeat against Austria sealed their elimination from Euro 2024 due to the match outcome.
