Antoine Griezmann and Olivier Giroud on target as France beat Wales

Goals by Antoine Griezmann and Olivier Giroud earned France a comprehensive 2-0 home win against Wales in a friendly game at the Stade de France on Friday.

The duo found the back of the net either side of the interval as Les Bleus, who will take part in next year's World Cup finals, snatched a routine win.

Griezmann volleyed home just inside the box from Corentin Tolisso's superb cross in the 18th minute to put Didier Deschamps's team ahead.
It was the 10th time in his last 12 games for the national side that the Atletico Madrid forward was involved in a goal.

Wales, who missed out on a place at next year's tournament in Russia, were just content to defend.

In the second half, Kylian Mbappe's cross was met by Giroud, who beat Wayne Hennessey with a left-footed shot in the 71st minute to seal the win.

Atletico Madrid celebrated the inauguration of their new stadium with a 1-0 win over Malaga, Antoine Griezmann's 60th-minute goal delighting the sell-out Wanda Metropolitano.

At the Metropolitano, an opening ceremony involving parachutists and reminders of Atletico's history and previous homes, including the Vicente Calderon, gave way to a tight match.
Bottom-of-the-table Malaga held their own but eventually Atletico's pressure told, with Angel Correa beating his man on the right and crossing for Griezmann to fire home from close range.

The result moves Atleti up to third on eight points, behind Real Sociedad in second, with Barcelona top with four wins from win.
Champions Real Madrid, who are lying 11th, travel to second-placed Real Sociedad on Sunday.

Antoine Griezmann sichert Atlético Madrid knappen Sieg gegen Leicester City

Überraschungsteam Leicester City steht in der Champions League vor dem Aus. Der englische Sensationsmeister verlor das Viertelfinal-Hinspiel beim Vorjahres-Finalisten Atlético Madrid mit 0:1 (0:1) und benötigt am kommenden Mittwoch im eigenen Stadion einen deutlichen Erfolg zum Weiterkommen. Superstar Antoine Griezmann (28., Foulelfmeter) schoss die Madrilenen zum Sieg.

So lief das Spiel:

Vor dem Spiel hätte Leicester dieses Ergebnis vermutlich ohne zu murren unterschrieben - hinterher nehmen sie es noch mit Kusshand. Ohne einen einzigen Schuss auf des Gegners Tor, ohne Gefahr auszustrahlen, haben sich die Engländer mit minimalstem Aufwand durchgewurschtelt. Im heimischen Stadion haben die "Foxes" noch alle Chancen auf die Sensation, sprich den Einzug ins Halbfinale der Champions League.

Und Atlético? Die waren drückend überlegen die gesamte Spielzeit über, insbesondere in Halbzeit eins. Heraussprangen dabei aber auch nur mickrige drei Schüsse aufs Tor. Und das bei 68 Prozent Ballbesitz, acht Ecken und mehr als doppelt so vielen angekommenen Pässen. Dass der einzige Treffer des Tages aus einem zweifelhaften Elfmeter entstand, ist dabei bezeichnend. Der Aufwand, den die Gastgeber betrieben haben, hat sich keinesfalls gelohnt. Und deshalb muss im Rückspiel nochmal mächtig gezittert werden, auf diesem Ergebnis können sich die Männer von Diego Simeone nicht ausruhen.

Die Stimmen:

Craig Shakespeare (Trainer Leicester): "Wir wollten wenigstens ein Auswärtstor schießen, aber 0:1 ist ein Ergebnis, mit dem wir zurück nach Leicester fahren können. Dort sind wir stark."

Das fiel auf:

Immer mindestens sechs Leute hinter dem Ball - das war der Plan von Leicester-Coach Shakespeare, der auch überwiegend aufging. Damit war die Spielweise der Blauen alles andere als ein Gedicht. Atlético machte das Spiel zwar breit, konnte die starke Defensive aber trotzdem nicht weit genug auseinanderziehen. Und nach vorne ließen sich die Abwehrspezialisten von der Insel gleich gar nicht locken.
Da mag wohl einer den englischen Fußball nicht. Nach Meinung dieses Fans hat Leicester aufgrund seiner britischen Spielweise zurecht verloren.

Die Statistik: 9

Seit sage und schreibe neun K.o.-Spielen wettbewerbsübergreifend hat Atletico nicht mehr zu Hause verloren - ja, nicht mal ein Gegentor kassiert.

Griezmann: Every player dreams of Real Madrid, Barcelona and Bayern

Some of Europe's biggest clubs are interested in the France international, but while he is flattered he will stay put for the time being

Antoine Griezmann would be open to joining Real Madrid, Barcelona or Bayern Munich at some stage in his career, but the attacker is adamant he has no intention of leaving Atletico Madrid just yet.
The France international is regularly linked with a potential move away from Atletico, and Manchester United are believed to be among the leading candidates to secure his services.
A move to Old Trafford is seemingly not at the top of Griezmann's wishlist, though, as he suggested other heavyweight clubs, including two LaLiga rivals, could be more attractive if he were to leave Atleti.
"Could I play for Real Madrid or Barcelona in the future? Why not," Griezmann was quoted as saying by Marca.
"It is every player's dream to play for a big club like those two or for Bayern Munich.
"But I cannot see myself at Barca or Madrid at this stage, nor at any other club. I am happy where I am now.
"I have no intention of leaving Atletico, not for Paris Saint-Germain, not for China, not for MLS, not for Russia and not for any other destination."
The attacker, who turns 26 on Tuesday, opted to stay at Atleti last year after holding talks with Diego Simeone, but he has made it clear his situation is not necessarily tied to that of the coach.
"My future does not depend on Simeone. He could leave one day or I could leave," Griezmann added.
"I called him ahead of this season to find out what his plans were, he told me he would stay and that felt good, so I also stayed.
"But we are not inseparable."
