Switzerland's shirts were ripped to shreds against France (and the ball popped)


France couldn't really deny pulling Swiss players' shirts during their Group A clash that ended in a goalless draw.

Three Switzerland players ended up with large holes in their new red shirts in the first half - Admir Mehmedi, Blerim Dzemaili and Granit Xhaka.

Which seemed like an unusual ratio of players for 45 minutes of football.

It had Twitter wondering: Are the French players incredibly strong or are the shirts made of paper?

And it's not just the shirts - the ball popped at one point.

On top of that, the pitch didn't seem to be in good shape either, with players slipping and sliding everywhere.

In other amusing moments, Paul Pogba climbed over Breel Embolo and ended up in this position.
