    Brilliant game by Xhaka. Was a busy bee in the midfield throughout the game. Some sympathy for Paul Pogba, who capped a fine performance with a wonder goal. And the French did not have a bad game collectively. They just ran into a determined, stubborn Swiss side that refused to lie down. Coming back like they did from 3-1 down in the last periods of the game against a side like France, has got to be one of the great comebacks in football. Dogged determination….refusing to lose….this is what it takes to beat the best. Rohr, Super Eagles, are you watching?
