Two finals in the space of a couple of months and two losses, no, two heartbreaking, soul-sucking, gut-wrenching losses. One came via penalties to Atletico’s arch rivals after playing so well to get his side to the final. The next came in his home nation with an extra-time strike against a team France were heavily favoured to beat.
Let’s hope, as Rojiblancos, that he returns to Madrid and his friends gather round him, helping him to get back on track and win silverware next year, not for the club’s sake but for his sake! He is too good to keep losing like this.
He did finish the competition as the top scorer with six goals, but that will meant little to the fiery little Frenchman. He wants silverware and he deserves to have won at least one of those finals.
Twitter agrees, and here are some of the tweets in reaction to Griezmann and France’s Euro 2016 defeat:
Poor Griezmann. Lost two massive finals in two months, and did more than anyone to get his teams there. His day will come.— Miguel Delaney (@MiguelDelaney) July 10, 2016
#EUROFACTS - Griezmann is the second player to lose the Champions League final and the Euros final on the same season after Ballack (2008).— MisterChip (English) (@MisterChiping) July 10, 2016

Feel Sorry for Griezmann. He was class in every game. Football is cruel.— Utkarsh. (@iUtkarshJoshi) July 10, 2016
Griezmann legit looks like he doesn't feel pain anymore.— Az. (@TheNumber10Role) July 10, 2016
Sorry but Griezmann's wee sad face just makes you want to greet with him nothing brings out your maternal instinct like a crying man— chels (@chelseamacg) July 10, 2016

Don't talk shit about Griezmann if you were talking about how good he is before this game started— JP (@jeanpaul099) July 10, 2016
