Review

Romania v Switzerland is unlikely to light up Paris’s Parc du Princes – although Tottenham fans should look out for Swiss wunderkind Breel Embolo, who’s rumoured to be on his way to White Hart Lane.

Summary

Romania v Switzerland (Kick-off 5.00pm). Coverage of the Group A match from Parc des Princes in Paris, as the teams play their second contest of the competition. This will be the 13th meeting between these nations, but only the second at an international tournament, having previously faced each other at the 1994 World Cup in the United States. The Swiss came out on top on that occasion, recording a 4-1 win in the group stage that was masterminded by current England head coach Roy Hodgson, which was perhaps something of a surprise given that the Romanians boasted some of their more legendary players like Gheorghe Hagi, Florin Raducioiu and Ilie Dumitrescu. Both teams secured their place at Euro 2016 by finishing second in their qualifying group, with Romania being beaten to the top spot by Northern Ireland, and the Swiss unable to outperform England, although two of Switzerland's three losses were both to England, and they won seven of their other eight games. Presented by Mark Pougatch, with commentary by Sam Matterface and Andy Townsend, and analysis by Norman Whiteside, Slaven Bilic and Craig Bellamy.
