French superiority

In 2006 Switzerland were eliminated from the World Cup without conceding a goal. In 2010 Switzerland defeated the later world champions. In qualification Switzerland won their group overwhelmingly. 
All this is to say that the Swiss are a side that is not easy to defeat. If anything, you should not expect to score many goals against them.
But France came into the picture. An amazing French side that is playing like a team, rather than as eleven players. 5-2 over Switzerland is not a fluke, but rather expression of a French side that has found a rhythm and are announcing themselves as contenders for the title. Five different players scored France's goals, which also speaks about the squad's depth. It was an outstanding French side, and all teams will be fearing them, and all football fans should be looking forward to see them.
