Just leaving this placeholder here. As a Welsh supporter, I will be keeping a close on the first match.

Apparently Pogba and Griezmann have been dropped by Deschamps for their poor performances vs Romania, with the French moving to a 4-2-3-1.

My predictions: Slovakia will win, France will get their three points smoothly and easily this time, and Romania-Switzerland will be a close tie, probably a draw. Given my prowess as a fortune teller, it'll probably all turn out differently though.

Rather embarrassing that England didn't beat Russia by three or four now.

Really good game from Slovakia. And a very tough situation for the Russians.

That was the worst defending we've seen so far at this tournament. How did England manage to not win against them?

1/3 so far.

This is such a poor Russian side. England will be kicking themselves for not picking up three points against them. Puts the English under quite a bit of pressure for the Wales game - cannot afford to lose that one.

I'm going for a comfortable France win and Switzerland to edge Romania by the odd goal in a tight game.

At the end of the match, ESPN reported that another flare was fired when Russia scored its late goal. Is that enough to boot them out?

Wouldn't have thought so. I understand why UEFA and that don't want flares brought into grounds but setting one off in your own end and not hurting anybody or chucking it anywhere shouldn't really be a problem.

Hamsik's play was amazing! Deserved victory for Slovakia. How could England not win such a weak Russian team???

I think you are underestimating Switzerland. I am think it's even possible they finish the group stage ahead of France. Ok, now that I have said that, they will probably lose to Romania just to make me eat my words.

What's the deal with Romania and penalties?

Not quite happening for the Swiss. They're a good team but they still haven't found an adequate replacement for Alexander Frei up front.

Romania, meanwhile, look a tough nut to crack. Solid and counter-attack with decent urgency.

By not playing Vardy, Sturridge or Rashford even when it was obvious after ten minutes that Kane was a lame horse?

The mighty Slovakia getting into their stride today, as expected. Weiss and Hamsik combining to shoot, skin and eat the Russian bear. Onwards to glory!

But who would have taken the corners? :unsure:
