Switzerland took the lead in the first attack, shocking the former Euro champions. In the fifteenth minute, Seferovic jumped from the left into Steven Zuber’s great cross D-box and sent the ball into the net. Defender Clemento Longley made no attempt to resist.
Benfica forward Seferovic also scored a goal in the survival match against Turkey in the last round of the group.
France’s performance in the first half was disappointing. He was a little ahead in possession of the ball, but also attacked; However, none of their six shots were aimed at the goal.
Griezmann was the only brilliant name in the French attack in the first 45 minutes. His shot from far away in the 47th minute went just outside the post.
Five minutes later, the referee blew the whistle for the penalty with the help of VAR when defender Banjaman Pavard fouled Zuber in the D-box line. But Ricardo Rodriguez squandered the golden opportunity to increase the pressure on the French; Hugo Loris blocked his weak spot kick.
Then the French invasion woke up. Last year’s runners-up went ahead with two goals from Benzema in two minutes. In the 57th minute, the ball extended in the face of MBAP’s D-box was behind Benzema who was leaning forward.
The Real Madrid star pulled the ball in front with a left-footed flick with extraordinary skill, and found the address at the second tap.
With the exception of the moment of the spot-kick miss, the goal-digesting-stunned Swiss put the ball back into their net before it was ready. All of the French attacking trio involved in the goal; Griezmann grabbed the ball in the back heel of Mbabane, increased the cross to the far post and jumped to the head from very close. Returning to the national team after five years, he saw the first net in the previous match. He scored two goals in the second match in a row.

In the last 30 seconds of the four-minute added time, both teams had a golden opportunity to snatch the victory. But no one could. Loris and Kingsley Koman’s shot was blocked at the crossbar by the Swiss in a one-on-one.
In the 110th minute, Mbabane got a chance to lead the team again. But the PSG forward hit the side net even though he got the ball in a great position in the D-box. This was his form throughout the tournament.
After a while, Benzema’s replacement Olivier Giroud disappointed. In the last minute of the last minute, Sameer took the match tiebreaker by blocking the head of Chelsea forward.
He is also the hero there. And in the last final, the frustration of the rate came to the mission of Vola and France was in trouble to get knocked out at the beginning of the knockout stage.
Despite playing football in Daputa throughout the second half, the departure may have added to the French’s woes. In 120 minutes of fighting, they took a total of 26 shots for the goal, eight of which were on target. In contrast, the Swiss hit five of 12 shots.
