Hosts France played a goal-less draw with Switzerland in the EURO 2016’s Group A match at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy in Lille on Monday.

The result means that both the teams are through to the round of 16, as France finished as the group leaders while Switzerland finished second.

Albania also strengthened their chances of progressing from Group A, after they defeated Romania 1-0.

France and Switzerland both played very safe, and it was evident from the start that both the teams were trying to avoid making mistakes.

Though the match did have some entertainment, as Four shirts were ripped shirts, one ball burst, and all os this happened with no goals being scored.

France took the back seat and let Switzerland take control of the ball, which they did but the Swiss failed to pose any real threat at the French goal.

Though Griezmann and Payet did come very close to scoring, but they were denied by Switzerland.

While the Swiss were denied a penalty by the officials during the injury time when Sagna had a massive grab of a Swiss shirt, but the referee thought otherwise.

Les Bleus were the favorites to top the group and that is exactly what they did.
