This game needs Cabaye, I'm being serious.

Martial is shocking tonight.

Kirby

And the most boring game of Euro 2016 goes to...

Martial has been absolutely appalling. It's like watching Wayne Andrews.

Wasn't going to bother with this one as I thought France would win easily. Hope Albania can keep this up but suspect it will be 2-0 France

If the French wore Liam Neeson masks the Albanians would shite themselves.
Right now the Albanians are well in it................

Been impressed with Albania but France have been poor so far.

Would be great if Albania did manage to win.

Giroud needs 30 chances to score a goal. How he's on the pitch in front of Griezmann is beyond me

RobertCPFC

I thought that was in.

Feel like France will score soon.

SeanPalace84

Giroud is class, don't understand the Arsenal fans that knock him. Class player that works hard.

With good service he scores, simple although not been great with his head.

They both started last week and who scored. Giroud is a better player although I rate Griezmann.

How the f*ck is Evra still on the pitch, let alone not been booked! And as for that scything challenge just now... Why the f*ck did the ref wave play on?

Loris is one of the quickest GKs off his line and Berisha must be one of the slowest.

Albania very unfortunate to have 0 points so far.

France stuttering through, but showing quality when it matters.

Next game, now that they're qualified.

Harsh on Albania in the end. They defended well but was just to much.

Two games to late wins for the French.

He has been better on ITV than I expected but I'm not sure about his celebration they showed.

I wonder if West Ham are going to be able to hang onto Payet? Going to be some rich clubs sniffing around him this Summer. He's a classy player, I really like how his head is always turning and looking around to get a read on the players and space around him.

To be fair to the French, they kept going.
Would Hodgson's England have done that ? Nah, he would have stuck Milner and Henderson on and taken off the strikers.:o

Lol. I'd say he's too good for West ham, not the premier league

dire defensive snore fest from the Albanians

I think this is one of the problems with making the competition bigger. Last time with less teams all very good and only 2 teams going through, the games were far more attacking with both teams trying to win. Too many teams just putting 10 behind the ball and hoping for 3 draws which might get them through. It's nice to see unfashionable nations involved but sometimes it's at the expense of a good spectacle.

they're offering 32m for Lacazette. They can certainly afford to keep him. Their price tag would probably be too much for a 29 year old

While I thought this would be true,that would be harsh on most of the teams in the tournament to say that.Especially Albania who were the better side in the 1st half.

Unless a really big club wants him for their first team I think they might be able to. He's 29 now so it's a bit late for a really big move you would think. He has played well and scored against Romania and Albania. If he keeps this up throughout the tournament against the big guns, then things could change.

Yep, but if one of the big Champions League clubs come sniffing, his head could be turned and then things become inevitable.

Hasn't he just signed a new five year deal putting him on 125k a week? He's 29 so I can't see anyone paying the money that West Ham would ask now that he's on a long term deal but you never know.

Is he going to get in Real Madrid's team? I would say no. Barca? Nope. Maybe one of the others, but genuinely think he needs to do this kind of thing against the top sides.

very true, fair play to the teams that have gone and stuck to their attacking principles and at least every single game has involved goals but vast periods of some games are awful.

True, but you get plenty of garbage at the World Cup too, with even more teams. It is about sponsorship and money these days, plus makes the qualifiers more exciting for the teams that previously had no hope of qualifying.
