Payet's magic saves the day for France

Host nation and tournament favorites France needed a late stunner from Dmitri Payet to see off Romania in a tightly contested opening game as EURO 2016 got underway.

Arsenal's Olivier Giroud gave France the lead just before the hour mark but Bogdan Stancu kept his cool to slot home a penalty seven minutes later. Payet saved Les Bleus' when he sent a stunning strike into the top corner from the edge of the box, securing all three points.
