1-851133

Switzerland followed France through to the last 16 of Euro 2016 by holding the host nation to a 0-0 draw in their final Group A match on Sunday after the unlucky French hit the woodwork three times on Sunday.

Didier Deschamps sprung a huge surprise before kick-off, leaving out star of the tournament and former Lille player Dimitri Payet.

But it was Paul Pogba who took over centre stage in the opening half, twice denied by Swiss keeper Jann Sommer before clipping the bar with a venomous drive.
