Apparently, the elimination from Euro semi-finals was hard to swallow in Germany where the press is accusing France's team of doping.
France's victory against World Soccer Champion Germany (2-0) in the semi-finals of Euro 2016 was undoubtedly a great achievement. A true disappointment in Germany so much so the German press are trying to justify this loss. Being the sore losers that they are, our German friends had the good idea of accusing the French players of doping.
The reason of this accusation is found inside the French team's locker room, where a Guronsan tube, an antiasthenic containing vitamin C and caffeine, was found next to a bottle of Minute Maid Orange. The daily Bild was the one who launched this information today, with a photo illustrating the news and a doctor's testimony for confirmation.
"According to the anti-doping code, every means used to increase performance otherwise than by the body's power is considered doping" said the doctor Fritz Sörgel. But that product is not on the doping list and there is no proof that it belonged to a French player. A member of staff could have used this product. Anyway, these very serious allegations will not change the fact that the Germains were defeated in the semifinals...
Just for fun, let's watch Grizou's second goal against Germany :
