We all thought England’s draw with Scotland was a shock result, but France drawing with Hungary was a much bigger one. It’s like there’s an arrogance there, thinking that you just get to turn up and win a game. It doesn’t work like that, even with the weaker sides you’ve got to work hard.

Wednesday 20:00: Portugal v France
BBC One

France are a lot of peoples’ tip to win this tournament, but even they can have a bad day. They really should have won that game against Hungary though. So, they’ve put themselves under pressure now to top Group F.

I think this game between France and Portugal is a really difficult game to call. Germany will likely end up top in this group so France and Portugal are left to fight out for second and third place. Both teams need to win this and because of that, I fancy a draw.

Not only a draw, though, I reckon there will be goals. So I’ll go for a 2-2 draw with the big boys coming into play in this massive game. Cristiano Ronaldo has already scored a few and Kylian Mbappe needs to start scoring soon. I’ll back both of those to net on Wednesday night.
