Great chance for Sweden to gain some ground on France and/or Netherlands with them both playing each other in the first round. Sweden should be getting 6 points. Also fancy France to get 6 so they and Sweden might both pull away from 3rd spot.

I reckon France 2-1. 

Giroud finally gets a start. Mbappe on the bench.

Griezmann scores finishing off a well-worked France move. I don't think he meant to nutmeg the keeper's legs though xD

Was poor play all around from Holland, the keeper didnt do anything just stayed on his line, defence was static as well.

You can't help but feel Griezmann would be ten times better if he were on a side that played free flowing football. Reckon at Barca or even Liverpool, he'd be twice the player he is now. Just oozes class.

Koscielny down and looks to be in some agony. Looked like a twisted ankle.

Arsenal fans won't be happy xD

Kevin Strootman gets a 2nd booking for a foul on Griezmann and is now sent off.

Was hardly a foul, Griezmann cheated and fell over his leg. Not suprised.

Yeah, definitely not a 2nd booking. There was minimal, ever so little contact on Griezmann. I think ref has seen Griezmann's theatrical fall out the corner of his eye and thought it was a worse foul than it actually was.

It's a shame to see Holland in the state they currently are.

They were always one of my favourite national teams to watch. This current side is just full of shite, bar a couple of players.

Netherlands vs Bulgaria on Sky Sports Football.

Good start by Netherlands. 1-0 after 6 minutes. Davy Propper scores.

sensational result in more than one sense for both teams.

France, with all their talent, must be wondering how they've not got 3 points. Luxembourg will be over the moon.

Luxembourg are very under estimated they do not get hammered alot anymore.  But If Holland had a sensible plan and the right formation against France I feel that could of been a draw as France are not as good as what they should be, so many problem players with arrogance.

Deschamps. Not enough creativity in midfield. Giroud and Griezmann didn't work. Awful.

In all seriousness though...  What about the options that France have.  How they didn't beat a side like Luxembourg is absolutely ridiculous.

Once Deschamps manages to click the right notes on the amount of players he has to choose from few will be able to stop them.  One thing's for sure, Giroud is the odd one out in all of that.
