Anyone else feel like Neymar’s personality is rubbing off on Mbappe and he’s becoming a little selfish shit? Dude played for himself the entire tournament. Looked absolute garbage the entire tournament except for a few moments in the first match. The guy is definitely feeling himself these days and he’s worse off for it.

Same thought exactly.

Pogba literally did 5 different celebrations for one goal (a superb one, but still) before giving away the ball.

It was satisfying win for Switzerland in one of the best matches in Euro. Only feeling sad for Kante.

Pogba danced too soon. It's never over till it's over.

Good work Swiss.

I thought Pogba had a pretty good match tbf, better than he looks at United - seems to regularly perform at a high level for Les Bleus

Even Mbappe, despite not scoring and failing to convert the penalty was involved very crucially in both of Benzema's goals. Obviously, he's a great talent but the hype train in general is absurd. Certainly doesn't help that he behaves like his idol CR

I think Deschamps deserves criticism for continuing to set up like they cannot dictate the match from the first whistle, Zizou will give the team a very different look I believe

Merci!

My son wanted to know who I'll root for :LOL:

I do not know how the Suisse will contend with Busi & Pedri in the middle of the pitch. Morata is the Spanish Seferovic but Spain have so much depth and ways to beat you. Still, we will savor this win for a lonnnnng time irrespective of result against Lucho's side - a chance but only just to beat them. A much weaker Suisse team beat a much stronger Spain at WC years ago 🍀

Brutal next round but that is typically how the Euros are, in the knockouts every match is difficult but no question for me La Roja are now prohibitive favorites

Belgium's chances really go through the floor if Eden & De Bruyne are not available

I envision Spain vs Italia for SF - what a possible encounter

I agree that Pogba was probably man of the match even tho France lost. The dribbles were there, massive in defence, nice passing, great goal and unstoppable penalty from the frenchman.

If only he had a game like that for United, maybe he had one this past season.

Difference between McTominay & Kante playing alongside him perhaps

PL is a toxic environment for skilled players. You cannot have a bunch of Guardiolas to tame these kids.

Arsenal, Manchester United, Chelsea (pre-Tuchel until the players get rid of him, too), Tottenham... This isn't an environment for top players. Liverpool and Manchester City are the only ones where you can seriously concentrate on football. Everyone else is there for the money and lack of pressure.

As much as I praised Pogba's performance, he did fuck up once where Switzerland scored immediatly and that's a cause for great resentment I guess
