The burden of hosting the Euro 2016 seats squarely on France’s shoulders. As a result, the Les Blues are under enormous pressure to give a good account of themselves.
Their narrow win in their opening game against Romania did very little to convince supporters and Wednesday’s game will have many wondering if France can go all the way.
Once again, against Albania the French team looked lackluster. Although Martial was picked to start, he had a night to forget.
Eventually, Griezmann secured the first goal for the French before Dmitri Payet ensured the result was assured with a sublime finish.
