The Blues are neck and neck with Switzerland (3-3), this Monday, June 28, during the knockout stages. After a difficult first half for the France team (Seferovic, 15th), the Bleux recovered thanks to a double from Benzéma in the 57th and 59th minutes. Paul Pogba then arrived with an extraordinary long shot in the 75th minute but the Swiss had not said their last word. Especially Seferovic came back to score a second goal in the 81st minute and Gavranovic who equalized at the very end of the match. Extra time failed to separate the two teams despite several chances.
Out first of the “group of death”, playing two great nations during the group stage – against Germany (1-0) and Portugal (2-2) – the Blues had fulfilled their initial objective and had regained a well-known opponent who hasn’t beaten them since 1992.
Didier Deschamps had to deal with certain absences. Injured in the last match, Digne and Koundé were forfeited.
