Dembele scores late victor as France beat England

The final score did not reflect the extent of their superiority, nor the abject cluelessness of their opponents.

The Tottenham Hotspur striker, the top scorer in the Premier League last season, netted a stoppage-time equaliser at Hampden Park and he gave the visitors the lead in the ninth minute here, tapping in after Raheem Sterling s back-heel had set up Ryan Bertrand to deliver a low cross from the left.

After an emotionally charged tribute, which included a rendition of Oasis classic "Don't Look Back in Anger" and an impeccably observed minute's silence, it was England who started the brighter and took the lead with just nine minutes on the clock. But in the 78th minute he somehow found space in the box to set up Dembele as he had for that sitter.

France's Djibril Sidibe goes down injured.

Raphael Varane was sent off before Kane equalised from the spot, but England couldn't take advantage of the extra man and Ousmane Dembele scored the victor for the hosts.

Kane's year-long goal drought for England began just before Euro 2016 and ended against Scotland last weekend. France could've had several more goals but contented themselves with one, scored by Dembele after lovely work from Lemar and Pogba. But the way England let them in was no laughing matter.

PM Lee had said in Parliament: "At that point, speaking as a son, I would like to see these wishes carried out". According to the statement, throughout his entire life, Kuan Yew's sole focus was on Singapore and its future.

3-4-3, are you serious? Until then, it's simple self-indulgence.

In the first first minute of the second half Engand were awarded a penalty when Alli was tripped by Varane as he burst through on goal. The pace and skill ahead of him allowed him to dominate the game. He was a constant danger but it was another rampaging, rapid French forward who was the star turn at Stade de France.

3 - England have conceded three goals in an worldwide for the first time since November 2012 (4-2 loss to Sweden). But their early goal only galvanised France and they were soon level when Samuel Umtiti buried the rebound after Tom Heaton had saved well from Oliver Giroud's header. "They are blistering and they will cause you huge problems on the counter-attack if you're not supremely well organised".

Dembele embarrassed Manchester City's £47.5m defender when he stepped inside him in the build-up to Sidibe's second goal for France and Stones was reduced to hauling back the brilliant Mbappe when he proved too much for him again in the second half.

Referee Massa pointed to the spot before referring the decision to video assistant Guido, who was working with VAR supervisor Massimiliano Irrati. That's very harsh, especially in a friendly - he ran across him, perhaps on goal but perhaps not.

On an evening when only Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling resembled worldwide players, Southgate was left looking for positives from another poor England performance. The Premier League golden boot victor had not played under Southgate until this get together and it is not hard to see why he is so central to England's plans.
