Posted by

As France came back from a 2-0 deficit to defeat Belgium and go to the Nations League final, Theo Hernandez scored a magnificent 90th-minute winner.

After surrendering two goals in the space of four minutes, Didier Deschamps’ team appeared to be out of contention at halftime, but a stunning second-half fightback set up a match with Spain.

Full-back for AC Milan Hernandez scored the game-winning goal, collecting the ball on the edge of the box and hitting a shot into the far corner, eliciting jubilant scenes at Turin’s Allianz Stadium.

Belgium took the lead in the 37th minute when Yannick Carrasco cut in from the left and hammered in a near-post shot that caught goalkeeper Hugo Lloris off guard.

Romelu Lukaku grabbed on to Kevin de Bruyne’s through ball and unleashed a scorching shot into the roof of the net just four minutes later, doubling Roberto Martinez’s side’s lead.
