Teams are arriving in France ahead of Euro 2016.

Switzerland touched down in Juvignac on Monday and were led by the likes of new Arsenal signing Granit Xhaka and Stoke City winger Xherdan Shaqiri.

Vladimir Petkovic’s men are among the first to feature at the tournament as they play their opening game against Albania on Saturday.

England manager Roy Hodgson and his 23-man squad also arrived in France ahead of their tough opener against Russia in Marseille.

Horse riders and a pipe band welcomed the players as their bus drove into the grounds of their hotel in Chantilly.

England who have been drawn in Group B, will also lock horns with Wales and Slovakia.

Although it is now 50 years since Bobby Moore lifted the World Cup, England’s 100 per cent record in qualification and some impressive friendly displays have highlighted the potential of some of their players.

The Three Lions beat Turkey and Australia before signing off their warm-up matches with a 1-0 win over Portugal at Wembley.

Hosts France kick off the tournament against Romania on Friday.
