  • GOAL! NO! The whistle has blown for full time but it was a glorious strike from the edge of the box from Benzema! The French protest rumbles on, but it is irrelevant. France are emphatic winners on the night.

  • There is no way through for Switzerland as they continue to finish with a flourish.

  • We will have three minutes added time.

  • Into the final minute of the ninety and France are happy to sit back now and rest on the lead they have, time to simply see it out.

  • Yohan Cabaye will miss the last group outing for France against Ecuador in Rio after flying in on Dzemail.

  • GOAL! SWITZERLAND! GRANIT XHAKA! Precision ball over the top from Inler is met first time by Xhaka, who slides it low beyond Lloris and the goal-fest continues!

  • Warning for Pogba after he flew into a tackle, no card and Switzerland are struggling to find a route through from the set piece.

  • Switzerland manage to make some ground but Koscielny is across to defend well and clear the threat.

  • The set piece is wasted by France and Switzerland are starting to show signs of frustration with some rash tackles.

  • Switzerland on the back foot once more as France win a free kick just beyond the halfway line.

  • GOAL! SWITZERLAND! BLERIM DZEMALI! It's a mere consolation for Switzerland but it is sloppy from the France. Dzemali strikes a long-range free kick low and straight through the wall, leaving Lloris helpless as the ball found the bottom corner.

  • France starting to seem a little more content as they sit back and hold off the Swiss attack.

  • Another goal-line scramble for Switzerland and Sissoko and Benzema both have shots on goal, they manage to avoid a sixth, for now. It looks like it may well be coming, though.

  • France fly forward again and Sissoko squares the ball to Valbuena on the edge of the box and his fierce effort is saved by Benaglio this time. It is full-on attack from France.

  • 'Ole' time at the Fonte Nova as France pass the ball across midfield before drawing a free kick just inside the Swiss half.

  • Switzerland on the move from the restart but the ball is plunged into touch as the French fans continue to party in the stands.

  • GOAL! FRANCE! MOUSA SISSOKO! Switzerland are capitulating here as France unlock their defence once more. Inler gives the ball away before Benzema offers a neat pass to Sissoko on the right of the box and he strikes first time into the bottom corner of Benaglio's goal.

  • Another chance for France as Varane slides Evra in on the left of the Swiss box, but he is unable to slot it home.

  • Corner for Switzerland again comes to nothing as the headed attempt goes wide of Lloris.
