Team News: France boss Didier Deschamps makes five changes ahead of Switzerland clash

Didier Deschamps makes five changes to his France starting XI ahead of Sunday night's Euro 2016 Group A game against Switzerland.

Didier Deschamps has made five changes to his France starting XI ahead of Sunday night's Euro 2016 Group A game against Switzerland.

Antoine Griezmann and Paul Pogba both return in place of Anthony Martial and N'Golo Kante, while Yohan Cabaye, Moussa Sissoko and Andre-Pierre Gignac replace Blaise Matuidi, Olivier Giroud and Dimitri Payet, who have all dropped to the bench in Lille.

Switzerland boss Vladimir Petkovic, meanwhile, has made just one change to his XI tonight, with Breel Embolo replacing Haris Seferovic in the final third.

Aside from the lone swap, it is otherwise the same team that drew 1-1 with Romania last time out, leaving Xherdan Shaqiri and Admir Mehmedi in the two wide positions.

Les Bleus have sealed progress to the knockout stages of the tournament with six points from their first two games, while the Swiss are in pole position to join them in second with four points ahead of Romania's one.

Switzerland: Sommer; Lichtsteiner, Schar, Djourou, Rodriguez; Behrami, Dzemaili, Xhaka; Shaqiri, Embolo, Mehmedi

France: Lloris; Jallet, Rami, Koscielny, Evra; Cabaye, Sissoko, Pogba; Griezmann, Gignac, Coman
