Group E equation

France will ensure top spot in the group with a point against Ecuador. Only defeat by at least four goals, coupled with a big win for Switzerland against Honduras, would deny Didier Deschamps' men.

Ecuador currently hold the goal difference advantage on Switzerland, with both teams on three points in second and third. To be sure of reaching the last 16, the South Americans need to and match what the Swiss are doing against Honduras.

Honduras will qualify for last 16 if they beat Switzerland and hope for a defeat for Ecuador against France.

They would then need to overtake both Switzerland and Ecuador on goal difference or, if goal difference was equal between the three sides, on goals scored.
