Payet Stunner helps France to 2-1 win over Romania in #Euro2016 Opening Game

The West Ham attacker scored a late stunner to earn the three points after Bogdan Stancu’s second-half penalty had cancelled out Giroud’s opener

Dimitri Payet was France’s hero as his stunning late strike earned the hosts a deserved 2-1 victory over Romania in their Euro 2016 opener on Friday.

Les Bleus were staring down the barrel of a frustrating draw in the Group A contest at the Stade de France with Bogdan Stancu’s penalty cancelling out Olivier Giroud’s 57th-minute opener.

But with the clock winding down, West Ham star Payet – France’s outstanding player on the night – curled in a brilliant left-footed effort from 25 yards to seal all three points.
