After a tumultuous first half, the reigning World Champions wasted little time to assert their authority on Switzerland. The Frenchman has widely been regarded as one of the players of the tournament and his latest moment of magic will do little to suggest otherwise.
The 28-year-old is a mainstay in Didier Deschamp’s France set up but the 30-yard strike was his first for Les Bleus since the 2018 World Cup final.
