France vs Switzerland build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
After suffering heartbreak at their home Euros in 2016, France bounced back to win the World Cup two years later, and now they are looking to string together consecutive major tournament titles for the second time (after World Cup ’98 and Euro 2000). Deschamps’ side was given a tough draw in Group F, but they came through relatively unscathed, unbeaten after their three games. The first result was a statement 1-0 win over Germany but they followed that up with a 1-1 draw against Hungary in which they had to come from behind. One final draw against Portugal was enough to secure top spot, one point clear of Germany and the defending European champions.
Switzerland also finished the group stage with just one win and they were made to wait until their final game for that to come. Vladimir Petkovic’s men were held to a 1-1 draw by Wales in their opening game, with Kieffer Moore cancelling out Breel Embolo’s equaliser, before Italy put Switzerland to the sword with a 3-0 victory. Switzerland went into their final game knowing a win over Turkey would give them a good chance of qualifying for the last-16 and a 3-1 win did the job, albeit as one of the best third-placed teams – level on points with second-placed Wales but behind on goal difference.
- France (vs Portugal): Lloris; Kounde*, Varane, Kimpembe, Hernandez*; Pogba, Kante; Tolisso, Griezmann, Mbappe; Benzema.
- Switzerland (vs Turkey): Sommer; Rodriguez, Elvedi, Akanji; Widmer, Xhaka, Freuler, Zuber; Shaqiri; Seferovic, Embolo.
Lucas Hernandez is a doubt through injury and the man who replaced him against Portugal, Lucas Digne, has been ruled out. Jules Kounde, Ousmane Dembele and Marcus Thuram are also injured for France, while Switzerland have no fresh concerns.

Players to watch:
- France: Going into the tournament, a lot was expected of Kylian Mbappe, but the Paris Saint-Germain forward is yet to really get going. En route to winning the World Cup in 2018, Mbappe scored four times including once in the final, taking his stardom to the world stage and he has continued to blow everyone away at club level. But as we hit the Euro 2020 group stages, Mbappe is without a goal or assist, having been pushed out to the wing to accommodate Karim Benzema. Mbappe has taken eight shots in total at Euro 2020 so far, more than any other France, but has only hit the target three times (a joint-high for France). France will be hoping he can finally convert one of those chances on Monday.
- Switzerland: One Swiss player that has had no problems converting his chances is Xherdan Shaqiri who is once again using international football as a welcome break from his club career. The 2020/21 season was another frustrating one for Shaqiri at Liverpool as he struggled for game time, but he was always going to be picked for Switzerland, such is his importance to the nation. And it’s already showing, with Shaqiri directly involved in three goals for Switzerland in the group stages. The Liverpool man set up Breel Embolo in Switzerland’s 1-1 draw with Wales before scoring twice as they beat Turkey, taking his overall tally for the country to 25.
