Grégoire Margotton, the thunderbolt

A few days before Euro 2024, Grégoire Margotton is celebrating the anniversary of Dimitri Payet’s goal against Romania in 2016. The Reunion Islander unleashed “lightning” on this action, according to the words chosen by the TF1 commentator.

It was eight years ago. The French team attacked Euro 2016, in front of its home crowd, with a sluggish success against Romania (2-1) at the Stade de France. A success offered by Dimitri Payet, author of a masterful strike into the top corner, from the left, out of reach of Ciprian Tatarusanu.

A striking goal, especially for Grégoire Margotton. The commentator had just arrived on TF1, and this Euro was his first major competition on the public channel. Somehow, this goal from Payet is also his first big moment as the new voice of the Blues. Grégoire Margotton had also let loose, with his usual sense of formula. “Oh the spark, oh the lightning”he said, in a sequence relayed this Monday by the main party to wish him a happy birthday.
