Newcastle United midfielder Moussa Sissoko was in action for France at the European Championship at the weekend.

Sissoko started the Euro 2016 Group A game for France against Switzerland at Stade Pierre-Mauroy in Villeneuve-d’Ascq on Sunday evening.

The former Toulouse midfielder played for the entire 90 minutes, as the home nation played out a goalless draw with Switzerland.

The 26-year-old played quite well for France, who have qualified for the last-16 stage of the competition as Group A winners.

Sissoko had a pass accuracy of 88%, created two chances, put in four crosses, attempted six dribbles, won 50% of his headers, and made one clearance and two blocks.

The Newcastle midfielder is very talented, but he does not have consistency. The Frenchman can look world class in one game, but in the very next he goes missing and is anonymous.

On Sunday evening, Sissoko had one of his better days, although he is not guaranteed a place in the France starting lineup for their next match.

Below are some of the pictures of the Newcastle midfielder in action against Switzerland:
