  1. Thank you for joining us this evening and I hope that you enjoyed the commentary.

  2. The game was delayed by 55 minutes due to heavy down pour and lightning but when it eventually got going, it was France that got into their stride quicker. In truth, they never got out of third gear but it was enough to give them a victory. Qualification from this group is still open wide and it will go down to the last game but France have certainly boosted their chances. As Ukraine, it's not all over. A win over England in their final game would put them through.

  3. Co-host Ukraine will be disappointed with that result but France are now up and running at Euro 2012.
