Euro 2016: FFT's Singapore Bulletin, Day 7
Slovaks make a statement
But the Slovaks care not for sentiment, rebounding from their opening loss to the Welsh with a deserved 2-1 win over the Russians overnight, led by impressive attacking midfielder Marek Hamsik.
Swiss miss chance to progress
Coming off an opening victory over Albania, Switzerland could have secured passage to the second round with another triumph over Romania.
Instead, they were probably happy to share the spoils after recovering from a goal down to record a 1-1 draw.
French flags flying high
Host nation France had no such troubles guaranteeing their spot in the round of 16, although there were some nervy moments in their 2-0 victory against Albania.
It took a 90th minute goal from Antoine Griezmann for the home fans to erupt, with early player-of-the-tournament contender Dimitri Payet adding some gloss in the sixth minute of injury time.
