Mbappe on the front foot as France draw with US

France were forced to come from behind to secure a 1-1 draw with the US in their final warm-up match ahead of the World Cup finals, with Paris Saint-Germain's Kylian Mbappe netting a late equaliser for Les Bleus.

The U.S. took the lead through a Julian Green goal in the first half, but a late strike from Kylian Mbappe allowed the hosts to salvage something in their World Cup sendoff, just prior to traveling to Russian Federation.

He added: "Paul Pogba has responded rather well to my expectations".

The boss of Les Bleus also offered assurances over the fitness of Giroud, who was bloodied and forced off following a head clash with U.S. defender Matt Miazga.

Further chances fell to Pogba and Griezmann, neither of whom managed to get their efforts on target, before the United States hit their opponents with a suckerpunch right on the stroke of half time.

However the visitors, who themselves failed to qualify for Russian Federation, took the lead in Lyon when Julian Green finished past Hugo Lloris a minute before half-time. The team looked solid when it came to creating chances, it just couldn't finish.

Forward Kylian Mbappe, 19, drew the hosts level on 78 minutes, converting substitute Benjamin Pavard's low cross.

"If you're 1-0 up, you're not bringing him on to close the game down".

France, drawn in Group C, begin their World Cup campaign against Australia on 16 June before facing Peru and Denmark.
