WORLD CUP: Switzerland 2 – 5 France Highlights

Any notion that the World Cup is turning into a tournament for the smaller nations was banished when Switzerland received their comeuppance from France, a 5-2 scoreline and a defeat that could easily have been heavier making a mockery of Fifa world rankings that currently have the Swiss at six and the French at 17th.

Scorer of the opening goal and architect of the third with a blistering length of the field sprint that might have come as a surprise to some of his critics at Arsenal, Olivier Giroud was the stand-out performer in an impressive French side reshaped by Didier Deschamps since the opening victory over Honduras. Paul Pogba and Antoine Griezmann were stood down, the former thought to have incurred his coach’s displeasure with his reaction to being fouled in the first game by Wilson Palacios.
