The upcoming semifinal between Spain and France pits two giants of European football against each other. France, led by the dynamic Kylian Mbappe, will look to overcome their recent struggles in front of goal. On the other hand, Spain, with the youthful exuberance of Lamine Yamal, has been a force to reckon with in the tournament. Despite being pre-tournament favourites, France's performance has not lived up to expectations, contrasting sharply with Spain's unbeaten run.

Spain has shown their dominance by scoring the most goals (11) and leading in total attempts (102) and balls recovered (230). These statistics underscore their status as the favourites to lift the trophy. Conversely, France's journey to the semifinals has been less convincing, advancing without scoring from open play. Despite reaching the finals of the last two World Cups, winning in 2018 and narrowly losing in 2022, France's Euro record under Didier Deschamps has been mixed, with their best result being a runner-up finish in 2016.

Midfielder Youssouf Fofana, speaking to the media on Sunday, brushed off criticism, emphasizing the team's achievement in reaching the semifinals. He questioned the need for negativity given their progress, highlighting the importance of focusing on the positives.
