France stage late, late show



The home nation tightened their grip on Group A in the tournament with two late goals...

The Albanians stood strong for the majority of the match and caused the French a number of problems throughout the match. Around the middle point of the second half, the Romanian’s had a chance to go in front as a shot deflected back off the post but into the path of the home side.

It was not until the dying moments of the game when Antoine Griezmann found the back of the net after coming off the bench. Dimitri Payet added a second with the last kick of the game to give the French two wins out of two games.

England go up against Wales tomorrow at 2PM BST. France will next play Switzerland on Sunday at 8PM BST.

It was Kun’s first start of the tournament and he completed the full 90 minutes, while Nicolas was substituted a quarter of an hour from time in what had become little more than a training exercise for Gerardo Martino’s side.
