France are still a work in progress requiring tweaks, despite coasting through to the knockout phase of Euro 2016 as group winners on Sunday, according to coach Didier Deschamps.

France drew 0-0 with Switzerland but were mere centimetres away from victory as they hit the woodwork three times.

Deschamps says: “If the goalkeeper [Yann Sommer] is Man of the Match it really tells you how it went.”

The Swiss qualified in second place and a 1-0 win for Albania over Romania means that they are in contention to finish as one of the best four third-placed teams who will progress to the last 16.
