FRANCE haven't had it all their own way but should clinch top spot in Group A in style.

Didier Deschamps' side have need late goals against Romania and Albania to win their openers.

Now they need just a point from Switzerland to win the group and book a last-16 slot against a third-placed side.

France are a 1-1 at McBookie and William Hill and it's that big for two reasons. Firstly a draw will mean France and Switzerland finish top two and secondly Deschamps could rest stars.

Most bookies make the stalemate 2-1 so they are anticipating fair play and let's hope there are no “arrangements”.

Antoine Griezmann didn't start against Albania but hit the opener after replacing Anthony Martial at half-time. I'm on the Atletico Madrid star to score first at 11-2 with bet365.

Dmitri Payet has been the star turn with two goals and two man-of-the-match awards. If the West Ham star plays consider him at 23-10 with McBookie to net at any time.

The tournament hasn't been a goalfest but hopefully a more relaxed France can cut loose. They look a great price at 7-5 with Coral to score two or more and three or more is 9-2 at bet365 but that's a big gamble.

In the other game Romania must beat pointless and scoreless Albania to have a chance of pipping the Swiss and a victory should guarantee them one of the best third places at worst.

Albania have battled well but lack quality up top and I'm on Romania at 6-5 with McBookie to pick up the points.

I tipped Albania to be the lowest-scoring team in the tournament and may do a kind of cover with them to net at 1-2 with Coral and Betfred.
