Antoine Griezmann took to Twitter after France’s 1-0 win over Portugal in the Nations League on Saturday to express his feelings about the win.

The Barcelona star has had a tough start to the season but put in an impressive display as the world champions qualified for the finals of the tournament.

Griezmann wrote on Twitter; “We play together, we run together, we suffer together, we WIN TOGETHER”

France’s winner came courtesy of Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante. The 29-year-old struck the only goal of the game on 53 minutes to give the visitors the win.

Didier Deschamps’s men should have been in front before then. Griezmann set up Anthony Martial for a great early chance, and it was not the only opportunity the Manchester United man wasted.

The victory puts France in the Nations League finals at the expense of holders Portugal who suffer a rare defeat.

Les Bleus top League A Group 3 with 13 points from five games which means they now have an unassailable lead. The finals of the tournament are due to take place in October of next year.
