A Mats Hummels own goal secured France a 1-0 victory over Germany as the world champions made a winning start to their Euro 2020 campaign in Munich.

Hummels turned the ball into his own net in the 20th minute and France also had Kylian Mbappe and Karim Benzema second-half goals ruled offside, while Adrien Rabiot hit the post for Les Bleus.

"It was a clash that could have been a semi-final or a final, so to take three points was important," said France coach Didier Deschamps.

"We played a big game against a very good German team, but we were up to the level and this victory does us good."

The result leaves France second on goal difference in the early Group F table behind Portugal, after the holders' 3-0 win over Hungary earlier in Budapest.

The home defeat piles the pressure on Germany ahead of their next game against Cristiano Ronaldo's Portugal on Saturday, also at the Allianz Arena.
