France has looked silky at times during its two matches at the European Championship but its lack of cutting edge up front could become a serious source of concern in the latter stages of the competition. The team, which on Wednesday became the first team to make it into the knockout stages of Euro 2016 after two late goals saw it beat Albania 2-0, is struggling to convert the numerous chances created by likes of midfielder Dimitri Payet into goals.

After three days of disorder in Marseille, when there were pockets of real violence involving England fans, much of it where they were the victims of Russian assaults, authorities were on high alert when both sets of supporters headed north for their next matches.
