Moussa Sissoko caught out by TV cameras during France's Euro 2016 opener

There were plenty of brilliant moments in France's Euro 2016 opening win against Romania last night. 

Dimitri Payet's late 30-yard thunderbolt stole the show of course, but we think this video of Moussa Sissokho is a sneaky contender for the moment of the night.

The Newcastle man has been in the news of late. It seems he's angling for a move to Arsenal having described a switch to the Gunners as 'very flattering' this week.

"I have reached a level where playing in the Championship would be difficult for me," he told Foot Mercato. "I need to continue to evolve.

"There will be discussions. I hope that they go in the right direction. I want to leave. I would like to continue my career in England, in a club that plays Champions League football.”

Well, if he wants to play Champions League football, it may be worth him trying a little bit harder when the cameras aren't on him. During France's 2-1 win over Romania last night, the 26-year-old was chilling on the sidelines. Literally just chilling.

Then a pesky TV camerman beamed images of him "chilling" to millions of people around the world - and when he realised, boy, did he put everything into the warm up. You can watch the brilliant video above.

On the pitch, Arsenal man Olivier Giroud opened the scoring, before Bogdan Stancu scored a surprise equaliser from the penalty spot. The game looked to be heading for a draw, only for Payet to seal the win with a superb strike.

Who do you think will win Euro 2016?
