Euro 2016: France v Albania 
France play their second game of the European Championship in group A as they take on Albania in front of a partisan crowd at the Stade Velodrome in Marseille.
Coach Didier Deschamps captained France to World Cup glory on home soil in 1998 - so will know all about handling the pressure and expectation that comes with hosting a tournament.  
Debutants Albania will be overwhelming underdogs but they qualified for the Euros ahead of both Denmark and Serbia, so won't be there just to make up the numbers.  Mark Pougatch presents live coverage with studio analysis from former French international Christian Karembeu and Ian Wright and additional contributions from Manu Petit, Louis Saha and Marion Bartoli, and commentary from Clive Tyldesley and Glenn Hoddle.
