Germany midfielder Toni Kroos said the pressure is also on hosts France when they meet in a mouthwatering Euro 2016 semi-final clash Thursday that will set up a July 10 final with Portugal.Kroos was an integral part of the Germany team that ousted France from the quarter-finals of the 2014 World Cup as Die Mannschaft romped to glory at the Maracana in Rio De Janeiro.All three of Germany's victories came at the World Cup, in 1982, 1986 and 2014 .Germany began the tournament as co-favorites and after five matches are now favorites to add the European Championship title to their World Cup crown.If successful, they would emulate Spain -- who won Euro 2012 and the 2010 World Cup -- and France, who won Euro 2000 two years after being crowned World Cup champions.
