England 'weren't good enough' in defeat to 10-man France - Kane

15 Juin 2017

After failing to beat Spain, Germany or France in friendlies, England coach Gareth Southgate has much to do if he wants to be competitive at next year's World Cup. Giroud, up first and highest above Kane, thunks a header goalwards, which Heaton scoops out, but only into the path of Umtiti, who opens his body and sidefoots firmly home.

"I think they know, they are a very honest group of players".

"It is stuff we have to work on, but [Eric] Dier is a great player and it was a ball which got cut out and that was unfortunate".

But France quickly found their footing, and Olivier Giroud's frustration was visible after an offside call saw his superb acrobatic goal cancelled out, before Dembele somehow directed wide after bursting through to latch onto a pass from Kylian Mbappe. They lost the midfield battle and it can only rank as a big disappointment to slip to a defeat when playing the final 43 minutes against ten men.

It was torturous at times, confirmation the Three Lions are an terrible long way from being a good team, let alone a top team.

The Southampton defender said: "The French are good players, but we are going to get that". We need to see the reality of where we are.

On 47 minutes, Real Madrid defender Varane hauled down Dele Alli in the box and was given a straight red card, as Kane stepped up to equalise. In the space of 90 minutes we saw the things we're very good at - with the ball we caused a lot of problems, looked a threat, created good openings, took our first goal very well.

During Comey's Senate testimony, he was asked if Trump's "order" constituted a criminal obstruction of justice. Karl , it seems, is one of those Fake News Network Killers-"Remember how nice you used to be before I ran?"

The authorities are keen that video referrals should be completed as briskly as possible, with VARs only instructed to overturn on-field decisions if they are clearly wrong rather than officiate every incident from scratch. "There is still an element of one person's judgement within that".

"The game's at 2-2 with them down to 10 men, that's a chance to really dominate the game and kill them, and that didn't happen for reasons we will analyse together and progress from there".

Deschamps said the sending off was the "disaster scenario" for France, but his team's fantastic display meant it did not matter.

Oasis" "Don't Look Back in Anger' was played as the teams walked out in a tribute to those who died in the Manchester and London terror attacks, while British Prime Minister Theresa May was also in the stands at the Stade de France beside French President Emmanuel Macron, and even took part in a Mexican Wave.

This, remember, is the PFA Young Player of the Year for a second season in a row.

With France down to ten men England should have taken the initiative, but it was a sloppy ball from Gary Cahill which let Les Bleus in once again, allowing Ousmane Dembele to bag his first goal at worldwide level, which turned out to be the victor.
