Yet their picture froze only three minutes into the match, as Switzerland‘s Ricardo Rodriguez prepared to take a corner.

Unhappy viewers poured onto social media to vent their anger at the issue.

Twitter user Gio posted online: “This game is so exciting. ITV hub letting me watch this corner for 10 minutes in a row.”

Alex wrote: “I’ve heard of time wasting but Ricardo Rodriguez taking 10 minutes to take a corner in the 3rd minute is taking the p***. Cheers ITV hub.”

And another viewer joined in: “Trying to watch France Vs Switzerland on ITV Hub. The tension is killing me. I wonder how this corner will go. No matter how many times I refresh it get’s stuck here. Sort it out ITV.”

Rodriguez’s corner was something of an anticlimax and world champions France for quickly up the pitch for a chance of their own.

But the timing of the problem meant many viewers missed France conceding an opener to Haris Seferovic after 15 minutes.

ITV responded to complaints and tweeted: “We are currently experiencing technical difficulties and working on getting services back as soon as possible.”
