England go down to 10 men France

England boss Gareth Southgate weighing up surprise midfield role for John Stones

Monaco's (for now) 18-year-old sensation Kylian Mbappe set up Ousmane Dembele for the victor in the 78th minute, giving 10-man France a 3-2 victory.

In fact, it was the hosts who started to dominate, and Dembele's late victor was more than they deserved after a thrilling display of attacking football from the side with one fewer player.

Gareth Southgate was frustrated by England's display on a night when not even the video assistant referee could help prevent a deserved defeat to France.

Southgate feels the Three Lions should have, as a minimum, held on for the draw in Paris, saying his players' lack of game management was the reason for the defeat.

"Beyond that, coaching conversations I have with players stay private", Southgate said. "There is still an element of one person's judgement within that".

After a delay, the penalty was awarded and Varane shown the red card - but it was hardly a convincing or definitive decision.

Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris retained his place, and wore the captain's armband, despite a howler that cost his side dear in a qualifier with Sweden on Friday.

On a frustrating night: "We should have got a result".

Wearing the captain's armband, Kane slammed home the 48th-minute penalty for his eighth global goal and third in two games.

England wilted considerably under late pressure and, after Mbappe failed to punish a slack pass out from the back by Cahill when he hit the bar, the teenager showed presence of mind to again pierce a flagging backline and tee up Dembele for an emphatic finish 12 minutes from time.

England had actually taken the lead at the Stade de France when Kane scored after only eight minutes.

France went on to win Tuesday's match 3-2.

- England conceded three goals in an worldwide for the first time since November 2012 (4-2 loss to Sweden) and have won only one of their last seven games against France (D1 L5). The technology confirmed Gerard Deulofeu's second goal for Spain - initially ruled out for offside - having earlier disallowed one for France's Antoine Griezmann just after halftime with score 0-0. It was Kane's 11th goal in his last five outings for club and country and took his tally to 29 in just 25 appearances in 2017.

In midfield, France were led by the masterful Paul Pogba, who is beginning to look a bargain at £89 million, and the Manchester United maestro effortlessly controlled the midfield. The only problem was that France were also playing three up, which meant they had Mbappe and Dembele running either side of Olivier Giroud. Then, just before half-time, Ousmane Dembele, another who had a fine match, sent John Stones out for a bag of chips, with Heaton again parrying into danger.

Dembele lined himself up for a curler that Heaton parried.

France were quicker, more aggressive and more youthful.
