If you want to see an example of a fine, fine counter-attack, look no further than France's third goal against Switzerland. Straight from a Switzerland corner, France moved the ball swiftly up the left side of the pitch, with Raphael Varane's long ball allowing Olivier Giroud to get in behind the Switzerland defense.
Giroud's pass across the face of goal was a thing of beauty, allowing Mathieu Valbuena to connect perfectly. This time the forward made no mistake, sending the shot into the roof of the net rather than slamming it into the woodwork. 3-0 to France, and it's not yet halftime.
