VIDEO: Payet's Moment Of Brilliance Saves The Host Country

In case you missed it here is the stunner from Dimitri Payet. It was evident from the opening ceremony how much this game and tournament was going to mean to the French players. Tears of pure joy falling down Payet's face is all you need to see to know the meaning of his goal. Romania fought hard as they tied the game up with a penalty in the second half but the French were still searching for a goal and 3 points as regulation end neared. Payet, who was already determined to be man of the match, broke Romanian hearts as he seized his moment in the 89th minute when he turned a ball on the top of the 18 and took his chances at goal. It was a picture perfect strike that left no uncertainty of whether or not it would hit the back of the net. What a moment for Payet and France. The perfect way to start the Euros!
