The France vs Switzerland Euro 2020 game starts today (Monday, June 28) at 8 p.m. BST / 3 p.m. ET / 12 p.m. PT. In the U.S., it's available on ESPN. In the U.K., you can watch on ITV and the ITV Hub. Full channel details below.
The France vs Switzerland live stream promises to be a true David vs Goliath matchup, with world champions France taking on one of Euro 2020's clearest remaining underdogs.
Switzerland scraped through their group with a last-chance win over underperformers Turkey, and must now face one of the tournament favorites. Still, the Turkey match gave reasons to believe this won't be a rout: Liverpool winger Xherdan Shaqiri scored twice, while goalkeeper Yann Sommer made multiple crucial saves. He'll likely need to do the same against France.

Since winning the World Cup in 2018, France has barely slipped in UEFA's power rankings, and managed to top Euro 2020's "Group of Death" over Germany and Portugal. Switzerland look like easy pickings by comparison, but remember that whoever slips up in this match is out for good — so France won't want to take their collective foot off the pedal.
France have made several changes for the game, bringing Clèment Lenglet and Benjamin Pavard into the defense and Adrien Rabiot into the midfield. Switzerland are unchanged. Here's how they line up:
France: Lloris, Varane, Lenglet, Kimpembe, Pavard, Pogba, Kante, Rabiot, Griezmann, Benzema, Mbappe.
Switzerland: Sommer, Elvedi, Akanji, Rodriguez, Widmer, Freuler, Xhaka, Zuber, Shaqiri, Seferovic, Embol.
