The unexpected has happened as France have been knocked out of the competition following a 4-5 defeat by Switzerland at the penalties. France was ahead with two goals from Karim Benzema and a fantastic header from Paul Pogba at the 75th minute. This ordinarily would have been a win for France, however, this are not ordinary times and in football always expect the unexpected.
Having scored an early goal at the 15th minute courtesy of Haris Seferovic, switzerland did not loose hope, they endured and created more chances at goal which eventually paid of with Haris Seferovic who netted his second goal at the 81st minute and Mario Gavranovic who scored at the 90th minute to set the scores level at the end of normal time.
Football is all about surprises and its not over until its over. Switzerland scored two goals in 9 minutes which changed the game play which sent them to the penalties. Switzerland has faces France a couple of times with their last encounter ending in a draw. If anything is to go by, Switzerland is a worthy opponent going forward.
