France kicked off the European Championships with a win as the hosts beat Romania 2-1 in a nervy opening match at Stade de France.

The French were aided by goals from two Premier League players. Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud scored the first, but it was cancelled out by a Stancu penalty not too long after. Then, Dimitri Payet of West Ham scored what will surely be one of the goals of the competition right at the death to save French face.

However, it was the celebration of Payet's goal that got people talking. In the explosion of delight in Paris, Giroud seemed to take his chance to get Payet for scoring a better goal than him. The Arsenal man seemed not to know his own strength as he hurled his West Ham counterpart to the ground.

Was it jealousy? Was it a heat-of-the-moment outburst? We can't be sure. Was it the GIF-tastic moments that Twitter was made for? Absolutely...
