A genuinely, magical and memorable moment.Didier Deschamps’ attempts to compensate for his lack of a left-back by playing aa 3-4-1-2 formation that literally backfired into his face. The swedish side displaying world-class performance especially at the midfield position . The french men had a couple of casualties

to begin with the new formation confused the midfielders who didn't know how far to pressure up, While the defenders were unsure of their positioning.

Haris Seferovic's goal at just 15 minites of playtime gave Switzerland the lead .At halftime however the french side switched to a 4-2-3-1 formation .Kingsley Coman''s substitution whose change at first had no impact but immediately after Hugo LIoris save a shoot from Ricardo Rodriguez bringing them to full gear.Mbappe's cross to Karim Benzema was netted in though the ball was like two yards away.

A minute and half later Karim Benzema netted in from an assist from Griezmann and Mbappe.Breaking a french scoring record previously broken by former Real Madrid Coach Zinedine.The french netted in a third and final goal from Manchester United's Paul Pogba which seemed to seal the victory then. 

Kipembe's poor form cost the french two of the last goals to a game they could have easily sealed off early enough.Kevin Mbabu slamming cross was Scored by Seferovic who scored twice now in the game just like Karim Benzema.After Mario Gavranovic's goal was disallowed he fired a comeback equalising shot from the edge of the box.

Extra time couldn't save the sailing French Ship , the play was sent to the penalties where Kylian Mbappe's saved penalty by Yan Sommer saw the former World Champions Out of the competition.
