Sissoko featured for France against Iceland in the quarter-finals of the 2016 European Championship at Stade de France in Saint-Denis.
Didier Deschamps’s side registered a comfortable 5-2 win to book their place in the semi-finals, where they will take on Germany.
Newcastle midfielder Sissoko started the game and played for the entire 90 minutes.
The 26-year-old took two shots, had a pass accuracy of 92%, created three chances, put in two crosses, attempted six dribbles, won 50% of his tackles, and made two interceptions, made one clearance and one block.
The France international midfielder has been linked with a move to Liverpool in the summer transfer window.
Newcastle and Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to Sissoko’s performance for France against Iceland on Sunday evening.

Newcastle United fans on Moussa Sissoko:
Sissoko to score winning goal & somehow convince Arsenal to pay £25 million for him! #NUFC— Dave Vizor (@DaveVizor) July 3, 2016
Sissoko under Rafa was completely different to Sissoko under McClaren. If Rafa can sell him the vision, I might be tempted to keep him.— Kia (@Kia_NUFC) July 3, 2016
#NUFC TV pundits just said Sissoko must play against Germany because they need his power and pace!.. Just booked specsavers— phil robson (@ivorberry) July 3, 2016
We should be willing on Sissoko at these Euros, his value goes up every time France progress #nufc— Matt (@ketchell) July 3, 2016
Still don't think Sissoko broke into a sweat tonight. #nufc— James Harrison (@mrbeast06) July 3, 2016
That Sissoko shot has probably just meant we're keeping him unfortunately #NUFC— Danny Pascoe (@DannyPascoe11) July 3, 2016
Liverpool fans on Moussa Sissoko:
I think Sissoko would be great signing for #lfc Strong physically and better than what we have— Ansar (@Ansar135) July 3, 2016
Moussa Sissoko is so average, I don't know why anyone wants him at Liverpool let alone that he's starting for France— Shanta Firmino (@Coppin_LFC) July 3, 2016
I would be pretty happy if we signed Sissoko from Newcastle. #LFC— Paul Winn (@Paul_Winn) July 3, 2016
Would rather have Moussa Sissoko than Joe Allen regardless of the Euros he's had #LFC— Mayur Chohan (@spockstar88) July 3, 2016
Sissoko is surely going to move this window . Would be a decent addition . Power and pace . Imagine him and Mane on the wings #lfc— Jared (@jetmoses21) July 3, 2016
I hope we target Sissoko instead of Zielinski now #LFC— James McLaughlin (@JamesMcL_JFT96) July 3, 2016
