It's Dimi v Darren!

  • France take on Ireland in Lyon at 2pm BST on Sunday
  • Dimitri Payet set to face Darren Randolph
  • Place in last eight awaits the victors
Sunday sees another battle of the Hammers at Euro 2016 as France's Dimitri Payet gets set to take on his club teammate Darren Randolph of the Republic of Ireland.

Payet has been one of the undoubted stars of the tournament so far and, on the first anniversary of signing for the Hammers, he will be looking to break down the resistance of Ireland stopper Randolph.

Randolph played a key role in helping his country through to the last 16 of Euro 2016, keeping a clean sheet in the 1-0 victory over Italy which secured third place in their group and qualification.

Payet, meanwhile, struck a stunning winner in his team's 2-1 victory against Romania in the opening game of the tournament, before following that with another goal in France's 2-0 win over Albania.

He then came off the bench in their third game against Switzerland, and was a whisker away from making it three goals in three games when he struck the bar in a 0-0 draw.

Randolph will undoubtedly have to be at his best to keep Payet and France at bay, with the winners facing the prospect of a potential meeting with England in the competition's last eight.
