Players walk out to sound of Oasis song for France-England

England coach Gareth Southgate directs his players during a friendly soccer match between France and England at the Stade de France in Saint Denis, north of Paris, France, Tuesday, June 13, 2017. "With the ball we caused France problems, created chances and scored two", Southgate told Sky Sports News.

Like Southgate, France manager Didier Deschamps also has questions over his goalkeeper, after Lloris was at fault for Sweden's winning goal at the weekend.

"The best way to manage the game is to keep possession of the ball, make the opposition run, make sure we would be able to press because we've got a man extra".

However, Les Bleus fought back and led at the half-time interval courtesy of goals from Samuel Umtiti and Djibril Sidibe.

Kane was disappointed England failed to go on to get a positive result, as they had with a last-gasp equaliser in Saturday's 2018 World Cup qualifier against Scotland in Glasgow.

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.

"I think at some point it is probably something we should do - in fact, I am certain it is something we should do - but I think it has been good to devolve the leadership".

Butland distinguished himself with a good block from Mbappe, a fine save from the same player late on and also did well to thwart Dembele after Monaco's teenage prodigy had hit the bar.

Bertrand and Eric Dier both went close to restoring England's advantage, but the sight of Mbappe skipping around Phil Jones to force a near-post save from Heaton gave another example of the attacking verve that would put France ahead before the break.

"I thought part of that was because we were exhausted, I think we put a huge amount into the game to try and press and to deal with the physical capabilities France had - and it was a problem for us all night, their pace and their athleticism".

Paul Pogba (France) His touch, presence and brain were far too much for England, and allowed him to dominate midfield.

Italian referee Davide Massa pointed to the spot, then flashed a red card after using video technology and Kane drilled the penalty straight down the middle. "We need to see the reality of where we are, to test yourself against the best, so you don't mask where you are in terms of a team", he added. Clearly, even with video, not every decision will be 100%.

"There'll still be an element of one person's judgement within that".

All this with the French having to play with ten men from the 47th minute when Real Madrid defender Raphael Verane was sent off.

Despite France impressing as they won despite playing nearly the entire second half with just 10 men, they were left as the to lift the trophy in Moscow next July.
