France leaves it late to see off Albania

The tournament hosts who are among the favorites needed a late stunner from a Dmitri Payet to clinch all three points in their first game against Romania. They left it really late to defeat an Albanian side they were widely expected to defeat comfortably.


Two quick fire goals in the dying minutes of the game from Antoine Griezman and man of the moment, Dmitri Payet saved the hosts from an embarrassing stalemate.


The victory confirmed their qualification to the next stage but performances like these against much weaker opposition has led observers to question France's title credentials.
