      Rumours that Pogba and Griezmann dropped for tonight in favour of Coman and Martial. Payet to play behind Giroud with Matuidi and Kante in midfield.

      Swiss v Romania now. Not expecting too much in this one.

      I was literally typing how Switzerland is my pick but they lack a goal scorer and Seferovic misses a sitter. He has looked sh*te so far this tournament.

      Romania still have trouble scoring so I'm going to say Switzerland nick a 1-0.

      :f_tongueincheek:

      Game has gone how i thought but that doesn't bring back my accumulator that had 1 goal or less in the match :D

      I really like the movement of Dzemailli for Switzerland. A midfielder that drops back but always willing to burst forward in to the box and not isolate the lone striker. Hasn't done too much with the ball but always in a good position.

      I like how France are setup with their 2 midfielders. Yes, not quite a creative midfield, but they are marshaling the middle well. I think it's time for them to drop Giroud and bring on Griezmann!

      As for the Albanians, they are impressing as a team!

      France with a last minute goal again. They're going to have to do better than this if they want to win it, not been impressed with them at all.

      Every game Tyldesley screeches over is spoilt straight away without a ball being kicked.
      If I had a way to sync up a radio commentary while watching it would be like medicine.

      Can't see the reason for having two defensive midfielders like Kante and Matuidi against a team like Albania.

      With so much attacking threat in that squad just too negative, hardly surprising they laboured for most of the match.

      Yeah, but they did change it at half time, and it made a huge difference. I actually thought Kante should've come off for Cabaye when they reverted to a 433.

      Unlucky Albania. Brilliant effort by them and 2-0 is very very harsh on them.

      France? My pre tournament favourites but there's something lacking there at the moment. All honesty I didn't realise the injury problems they had but they could do with something extra. At the moment it all too much reminds me of Brazil during the World Cup two years ago. Unconvincing performances guided through by the advantage of playing at home. I HIGHLY doubt that they will implode in the manner like Brazil did though because they don't have the sort of prima donna histrionics that made Brazil such a joke two years ago like bawling their eyes out to the national anthem and giving Neymar cringeworthy martyr like adoration after he got injured.

      That said, it's great to see just how competitive this tournament is. It's been really good stuff so far full of excellent and exciting matches.

      Pogba is a bloody tank. Just wrasped a left foot shot from 25 yards that had Sommer beaten. Hit the crossbar.

      He's popping up in both boxes. Last ditch blocks and then runs to try finish off moves.

      Amazing footballer.

      Not gonna lie, that Xhaka is absolutely quality and I would probably have him over Pogba for our midfield. Can't believe he is only 23 too.

      A rocket up sissoko's arse and given pogba needs a few years of development I'd take championship sissoko now.
