Fernandez Fires France to UEFA Nations League Final

Theo Fernandez scored a late minute goal to help complete France come back as they came from two goals down to win 3-2. France fell behind after 37 minutes, with Atlético Madrid playmaker Yannick Carrasco firing a lovely, low strike to Hugo Lloris’ left and into the back of the net.
