There we have it. France will not progress in the UEFA Nations League after a 90th minute equaliser from Virgil Van Dijk against Germany sent them to the top of the group.
The question remains: what can't this man do?

Holland will now join Gareth Southgate's England, Portugal and Switzerland in the Nations League semi-finals.
Goals from that man Van Dijk and Quincy Promes in the 85th minute sealed an important draw.
Not a bad finish for a centre-back, ey?

Goals from Timo Werner and Leroy Sane gave Germany a comfortable lead in the first half, but a second half fightback from Ronald Koeman's men sent the Netherlands through.
In other news, many fans picked up on the incredible tunnel ahead of Germany's Nations League tie against The Netherlands on Monday night, and were understandably in awe.
This magnificent structure belongs to Bundesliga side FC Schalke, who have always maintained strong connections to local mining - so much so that they redesigned the tunnel a few years ago to replicate a coal mine.
