France 3-3 Switzerland (4-5 pens) Highlights

GOAL! Pogba scores with sensational strike (Video)

Full-time: France 3-3 Switzerland (4-5 pen)

Favourites France are OUT of Euro 2020 after a stunning night of drama in Bucharest.

Kylian Mbappe missed the decisive shootout penalty as the reigning world champions exited the competition in the last 16.

After Spain’s enthralling 5-3 win over Croatia in Copenhagen earlier on Monday, there was more incredible action in Romania, with Switzerland taking a shock early lead through Haris Seferovic.

A Hugo Lloris penalty save and quick-fire Karim Benzema double turned the tie on its head in the space of four second-half minutes, with a sensational goal from Paul Pogba then looking to have sent resurgent France into the quarter-finals.

France 3-3 Switzerland (4-5) highlights

GOAL! France 3-1 Switzerland | Paul Pogba 75′

75 mins: Absolutely awesome from Pogba. What a goal!

After Benzema’s initial shot is blocked, the Manchester United midfielder picks up the loose ball and shows him how it’s done!

From about 30 yards, he produces a beautiful, inch-perfect strike that flies beyond the helpless Sommer and into the top corner.

Outrageous! France are heading for a quarter-final showdown with Spain in Saint Petersburg.

Before match

France appear to have been dealt a favourable draw against Switzerland in the last-16, but the world champions must find their feet at Euro 2020 or risk an early exit.

Les Bleus were admittedly given a tough task in Group F and did top the group, though the 2018 World Cup winners drew against Hungary and Portugal after beating Germany.

A front three of Kylian Mbappe, Karim Benzema and Antoine Griezamnn are yet to fully fire, and there is little room for error in the knockout stages.

France vs Switzerland line-up

France XI: Lloris, Varane, Lenglet, Kimpembe, Pavard, Pogba, Kante, Rabiot, Griezmann, Benzema, Mbappe

Switzerland XI: Sommer, Elvedi, Akanji, Rodriguez, Widmer, Freuler, Xhaka, Zuber, Shaqiri, Embolo, Seferovic

France vs Switzerland team news

France are facing mounting injuries, with Deschamps struggling for options. Lucas Hernandez had to be taken off against Portugal with a knee injury, and the left-back remains a doubt.

His replacement Lucas Digne is also nursing a hamstring injury and looks unlikely to be fit for Monday, forcing potential changes to Deschamps’ defensive plans.

Digne’s replacement in the game against Portugal, midfielder Adrien Rabiot, has himself been dealing with a nagging ankle injury since the end of the season and is not yet at 100 per cent.

To make matters worse, Thomas Lemar suffered a leg injury and Marcus Thuram hurt his right thigh in training on Thursday, hobbling off the pitch with the support of medical staff.
