Sunday night's 0-0 draw in Lille against Switzerland saw France clinch top spot in Group A.

And so the Parc OL will be the next stop for Les Bleus. France will play their last-16 clash in Olympique Lyonnais' home stadium, on Sunday, 26 June at 15:00 against the best third-placed side from Group C, D or E.

On Sunday night in Lille, Didier Deschamps' players couldn't make the break despite a string of clear-cut chances against Switzerland (0-0). Nonetheless, they ended the group stage with seven points, two lengths ahead of Switzerland, who will play their lasty-16 match in Saint-Etienne on Saturday, 25 June at 15:00 against the runners-up from Group C. Albania, who beat Romania 1-0 at the Parc OL on Sunday night, ended the group stage in third place in Group A.

This third outing for Les Bleus, at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy, sadly did not include a chance for Christophe Jallet and Samuel Umtiti to make their first appearances in the competition; once again, the two OL men spent the match on the bench.
