France Suffer Double Injury Blow Ahead Knockout Round Tie vs Switzerland

Lemar and Thuram appeared to be in serious discomfort during a recovery session following Les Bleus’ 2-2 draw with Portugal the previous day.

Meanwhile, Borussia Monchengladbach’s Thuram, 23, appeared to hold his groin as he sank to the floor during the session.
