Euro 2016 Review: France and Wales Top Groups A & B; Switzerland & England Qualify as Runners-Up

France and Wales have the luxury of competing against a third place qualifier after topping Groups A & B respectively. Switzerland and England go through as the runner-ups. Albania and Slovakia face a sweat to see if they can sneak through in third.

France and Switzerland epitomised the Euro 2016 vibe with a goalless draw in Lille. The hosts came into their final group game knowing their 100% record had guaranteed them a berth in the Round of 16 but were eager to finish as Group A leaders.

Paul Pogba, left out against Albania, returned to the side and looked as hungry as ever. The Juventus midfielder coming closest to scoring hitting the woodwork on two occasions, and having a smart shot saved by Yann Sommer in the Swiss goal. Dmitri Payet came on in the second half and also hit the bar.

It was a good point for the Swiss, who go through to the Round of 16 in second place. The French will face a third place qualifier in their Round of 16 match; Switzerland are likely to face Germany or Poland, and neither of them will be particularly quaking in their boots at the thought.
