Former Arsenal defender Lauren has taken to social networking site Twitter to give his reaction to Granit Xhaka’s performance for Switzerland against France on Sunday evening.

The Arsenal-bound midfielder started the Euro 2016 Group A game and played for the entire 90 minutes.

The game finished in a goalless draw, meaning that Switzerland have progressed to the knockout stages of the European Championship in France as Group A runners-up.
