Switzerland's Breel Embolo reacts after a missed chance
Breel Embolo was surprisingly left on the bench by Switzerland for a second game in a row at Euro 2016, having to make do with half an hour of action instead of the full 90 minutes.
Embolo's stunning performances for Basel have seen him dubbed the future of Swiss football, and he looked lively after coming on in yesterday's 1-1 draw with Romania.

Embolo, 19, scored 13 goals last season for Basel, including two in the Europa League.
Against Romania he managed to get in position to have two scoring opportunities, but could not make either count, missing the target both times.
He was also booked after committing two fouls, but has put himself in contention to start Switzerland's final game against France, with first choice striker Haris Seferovic doing little with his two starts.

His performance split the opinions of both Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur fans on Twitter, who seemed to appreciate that Embolo is a raw talent, but are not entirely convinced just yet.
Here is what United fans had to say...
Been very impressed with Embolo from what I've seen of this match. Got alot of work to do but still sooooo young #MUFC— Britten422 (@britten422) June 15, 2016
So this is the Embolo that José wants to sign? Eish... He doesn't look like all that... and his name is just too much. #MUFC— Khal Bogo (@TheXorak) June 15, 2016
Embolo has power, height and pace. Ideal player for the PL and looks to have massive space for improvement.— Its Sir Luis Andres (@Rooneyspint) June 15, 2016

Not seen anything from Breel Embolo that suggests he'd bring more to the party than a Poch preseason'd Clinton Njié IMO. Raw, isn't he?— Charlie Parrish (@charlieparrish) June 15, 2016
