France and Switzerland settled for a 3-3 draw after goals from Karim Benzema brace and Paul Pogba for France and Haris Seferovic brace and Mario Gavranovic 90th minute equaliser for Switzerland. Switzerland considered the underdogs went on to win the penalties 5-4 after Kylian Mbappe's spot kick was saved by the Swiss goalkeeper helping his team advance to the next round of the competition.
Chelsea FC star midfielder N'Golo Kante maintained his starting role alongside Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba, who scored a beautiful curling strike from outside the 18-yard box to put France 3-1 ahead in the 75th minute.
With his heads high and eyeing the Balon D'or, the former Leicester City man was exceptional for Didier Deschamps side helping to counter the threats possed by the Swiss one notably Arsenal's Granit Xhaka.
