France beat England 3-2 with 10 men

Winger Ousmane Dembele scored the victor as 10-man France overcame a red card for Raphael Varane early in the second half to beat England 3-2 in a pulsating friendly on Tuesday. "In the space of 90 minutes we saw the things that we are very good at - we looked a threat and created a lot of openings - and equally we saw what we have to do better", he said.

France were forced to play a man light for the vast majority of the second period following the dismissal of Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane but conjured victory through an Ousmane Dembele victor 12 minutes from time.

"One of the disappointments in that last half hour was not to control the game and the ball and make France work and tire them out". We've got to find a way to win, especially when they went down to 10 men. Southgate also changed formation, returning to a back three.

England actually started pretty well, crafting a attractive goal for Harry Kane on nine minutes.

France's players were touched by the overwhelming show of support they received from England fans when they played a friendly at Wembley Stadium on November 17, 2015 - just four days after the deadly attacks that swept through Paris.

Ousmane Dembele offered 10-man France the success (78), locating the bottom edge from 15 yards as England finished the season on a sour note.

Alli's burst into the box ended under pressure from Varane, with referee Massa pointing to the spot and referring to the video assistants.

"If we'd played lesser teams and won, maybe we'd all be getting excited and thinking that we're better than we are".

"We need to see the reality of where we are and you have to play against the best otherwise it masks where you are as a team".

England hit a five-year low against France on Tuesday, as they conceded three times for the first time since 2012.

French President Emmanuel Macron and Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May arrive to attend a friendly soccer match between France and England at the Stade de France in Saint Denis, north of Paris, France, Tuesday, June 13, 2017.

"But we've a bit do and I think it's important that as a group of players and a group of staff we recognise that".

"We have been competitive in all three games but we needed to play at our absolute limits to stay in all of those matches and that has shown in the end". "They received us very well when we came to Wembley after the attacks in Paris".

Perhaps he just might have time to become as good a finisher as Kane.

Although qualification for the 2018 World Cup is nearly given, the recent defeats have thrown some questions top ponder for Southgate which need to be resolved before England head to Russian Federation for worldwide football's showpiece event next year.
