    Win for France/Draw - France wins the group.
    Switzerland Win - Switzerland wins the group.

    France has not been great thus far, but they continue to win and aside from a suspect defensive line, they have quality all over the pitch. They pumped the Swiss 5-2 at the World Cup (although that was a Benzema inspired performance). This game figures to be a lot closer.

    First place in this group definitely has big time benefits....

    I doubt we will see another 5-2. I expect it to be less goals, however I am still tipping a draw or a France win, preferably a 1-1 draw maybe. I hope Switzerland upset and win though.

    France are better team. You could see that in the first half. France to win 1-0

    The Swiss cheese cloth shirts are hilarious. FIFA will probably ban them because they keep causing delay, though....

    We're lucky the ref didn't give Switzerland a penalty

    My god our defense is so awful :(

    Well it was a rather interesting game full of shirts being ripped off featuring a Pogba handstand. It should have been a penalty, but at the same time there was no better team. Whilst Switzerland were questionable in attack, France were questionable in defense. These are areas both teams would want to work on if they are to perform better in the future.

    So nobody will mention the Swiss hand in the penalty area in the first half? Should have been a penalty for France as well. All in all, tie is deserved.

    So looks like a very good chance of a Switzerland-Poland matchup in next round. Looking forward to that.

    I would say this was our worst game at the Euros this year (certainly up front) but it was good enough for a draw with the hosts. I'll take it.
