The Euro 2020 games continued on Monday as different national teams battled each other to secure a place in the quarter-finals. Football fans were all glued to their screens as they watched Spain vs Croatia and later World Champions France vs Switzerland.
Much attention was focused on the 2018 FIFA World Cup champions France as they looked to continue with their impressive run in the current tournament. The talented squad has been touted as the facilities to win the Euro 2020 tournament at Wembley in London later next month.
However, things were not smooth for France as they expected. They were haunted by a never-giving-up Switzerland side for the entire 90 minutes of the game. The World Champions fell behind in the first half but managed to launch a comeback via Karim Benzema brace and Paul Pogba wonder strike in the second half. Despite leading by 3 goals to one by 80th minute, Switzerland managed to net the equalizer by 90th minute.
Despite the performance, Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba was praised by football fans after his impressive performance. The midfielder scored one goal, created 3 chances, made 1 shot on target, blocked 2 shots, made 1 tackle.
This is an outstanding game statistic for the world cup winner. He was also impressive in other games for the Blues. Many have described him as the best midfielder of the tournament alongside Ngolo Kante.
