France flex muscles by smashing Switzerland; Benzema and Giroud score in 5-2 rout [Tweets]

While nobody dared called Group E particularly tough before the tournament began, we didn’t expect France to push aside opponents with such ease.

Having taken care of Honduras without much trouble, France followed up that victory with a stunning 5-2 win over Switzerland tonight.

Despite a late rally from Switzerland, it’s hard not to be impressed by how France dismantled their opponents; five different players getting on the scoresheet.

Giroud, Matuidi, Valbuena, Benzema and Sissoko scored for the French, who look certain to top the group. Switzerland replied with Dzemaili and Xhaka scoring nice goals.

But Twitter gushed over only one team.
