Areola saves see France hold Germany

Published

World champions France failed to provide punch in attack as they drew 0-0 away to Germany and had Alphonse Areola to thank at the other end.

Antoine Griezmann forced Manuel Neuer into a fine save in what was generally a disappointing first half and while it was better after the break, still neither side were able to light up the encounter.

Areola had more work to do in the second half as he beat away efforts from Marco Reus and Mattias Ginter, while generally Timo Werner caused problems for France with his pace.

Manchester City winger Leroy Sane came on for the Germans, having been a major talking point this summer after being left out of the World Cup squad, but he failed to make much of an impact.
