      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.

      Sissoko is a poor mans Pogba.

      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.
