EURO 2016

France and Switzerland progressed to the last 16 of Euro 2016 from Group A in first and second place respectively after a goalless draw in Lille.

Paul Pogba had the better of the chances in the first half, forcing Yann Sommer into a fine save from inside the area before hitting the crossbar from range.

Second-half substitute Dimitri Payet, who has two goals to his name already in the tournament, nearly grabbed a winner with 15 minutes remaining, seeing his superb volley from an angle smash off the crossbar.Paul Pogba goes over Breel Embolo in the first half in Lille

The result means France will play one of the third-place sides from Group C, D or E, while Switzerland will play the runner-up of Group C, which includes Germany, Poland and Northern Ireland.

In Group A’s other game, Romania were eliminated from the competition after a 1-0 defeat by Albania, who are on three points and stand a chance of reaching the last 16 as one of the four best third-place sides.
