It was the match that had everything – spectacular goals, a brutal clash and a dramatic comeback, before finally, a nail-biting penalty shootout.As the two countries prepare to meet again in the Euro 2016 semifinal in Marseille Thursday, the 1982 match has also become a symbol of the tense football relationship between France and Germany.With the score at 1-1 after a Pierre Littbarski goal was followed by an equalizing penalty from Platini, Battiston was sent clear with only the advancing Schumacher to beat.Actions that should have earned Schumacher a red card, as well as a penalty to France, went unpunished.Just as France were securing a place in the final, Germany hit back.With a chance to make it 4-2 to France though, Didier Six's effort was saved by Schumacher.
