Rodriguez and Coman: Swiss bite vs. French wolf tamer

Kingsley Coman and Ricardo Rodriguez go head-to-head at UEFA EURO 2016 on Sunday when France take on Switzerland in Lille. Will the FC Bayern München winger or the VfL Wolfsburg left-back prevail? bundesliga.com takes a closer look…

With Coman’s France career only seven months old, the pair have yet to meet on the international stage, but their club encounters in 2015/16 might shed some light on what to expect at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy.

After more than an hour of deadlock at the Volkswagen Arena, Coman opened the scoring after Rodriguez had been sucked towards his own penalty spot to cover his central defenders. One break of the ball later and Coman had volleyed home his fourth goal of the campaign. The prodigiously talented then-teenager added insult to injury less than ten minutes later, leaving Rodriguez for dust before spinning a delivery into the box which Franck Ribery helped on for Lewandowski to convert, completing a 2-0 win.
