West Ham United attacking midfielder Dimitri Payet continues to impress with his performances for France.
Payet did not appear to be part of his national side’s plans at the start of last season, but his impressive form for West Ham launched him into contention.
The 29-year-old has now firmly secured his place in France’s Euro 2016 squad, and he has put in a succession of excellent performances for Didier Deschamps’ men.
Payet was once again impressive, as France picked up an easy victory over Scotland.
The Hammers man did not find the scoresheet, but he was at the heart of everything good France did, as they picked up a comfortable 3-0 victory. Here is the best reaction from West Ham and France fans on social media site Twitter.

Watched France and my ooh my,they're brilliant. Martial excellent on left. Payet & Pogba central, Coman right. Frightening— David Onjili (@davidonjili) June 5, 2016
Payet seems to have taken a very important role for France. Central to every move forward for them. France have a decent chance of winning.— Tanmay (@tanmay1996) June 5, 2016

France looking good for #EURO2016. So much pace and penetration via Greizman, Martial, Pogba, Matuidi and Payet— Gurpreet Singh Rana (@Gurpr33t_Singh) June 4, 2016
France with Payet = 3 Goals— VIVE LA FRANCE (@WestHamLondon) June 4, 2016

Payet is the for #ViveLaFrance
Payet could have a crucial part to play at Euro 2016, with France the favourites to win the tournament.
There are not many players who go into the competition in better form, after Payet’s fantastic first season in the Premier League.
Payet made 30 appearances for West Ham in England’s top flight last term, and he scored nine goals.
