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?
WTF is up with the Swiss jerseys? I have never seen so many torn strips? #FRASUI

Wanna buy a Swiss shirt? Slightly ripped after running into a ball of wool. #FRASUI

Either the French players have superhuman strength or puma make their kits out of paper. #FRASUI

And it’s not just the shirts – the ball popped at one point.

Not even on a frozen, wet, muddy Sunday morning in Stratton have I seen a ball pop

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.
France and Switzerland have finished first and second in Group A.
