France opens Euro 2016 on shaky ground despite win

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.
