WATCH | OTB AM | Philippe Auclair on France, Kildare prospects and JD in Russia

Tune into our social channels from 7:45

France continued their Napoleonic march on Moscow, and will be hoping that their outing on Sunday evening will be more of a success.

Our very own little generals, Eoin Sheahan and Ger Gilroy, will be in studio to discuss the French exploits in their victory over Belgium yesterday evening. They will be in fine company, too. John Duggan was in situ in Saint Petersburg Stadium to watch the action, so we'll get his take on their chances and that most European of cities.

Philippe Auclair will also be on the line to discuss what this means to the French who, one might suspect, might be getting pretty bored of getting to finals of major competitions now - win or lose. 

Emmet Bolton is also on to discuss Kildare's prospects in the Super 8s.

All that and more on this morning's OTB AM live in association with, and as usual you can get your comments and thoughts into us on Facebook by following Off The Ball.
