Euro 2016: Antoine Griezmann reveals inspiration behind his goal celebration

It was a very hard match and Germany had the most chances in the first half, controlling the ball and tempo with nearly 65% possession of the ball. What's even more unbelievable is that all his goals have come from headers. "But putting together a great team takes a lot of time".
