Kane was the goal-scorer once again, netting from the penalty spot after Raphael Varane was judged to have fouled Dele Alli in the box.

Monaco's (for now) 18-year-old sensation Kylian Mbappe set up Ousmane Dembele for the victor in the 78th minute, giving 10-man France a 3-2 victory.

As the teams emerged from the tunnel, the band and choir of the French Republican Guard played "Don't Look Back in Anger", a song which has become an anthem for Manchester after the city was hit by a suicide bombing last month.

On the pitch, Kane's seventh England goal came after Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's diagonal sphere was grabbed by Raheem Sterling, whose creative back-heel enabled Ryan Bertrand to centre for the Tottenham striker.

"I think it has been a good experience to develop other leaders".

"We just didn't manage that period of the game as well as we needed to, I thought we exhausted", said Southgate. "Beyond that, coaching conversations I have with players stay private", Southgate said. But inspired by the peerless Paul Pogba, France gradually hauled themselves into the game and. on 22 minutes, Samuel Umititi was quickest to react after Tom Heaton could only push Olivier Giroud's header back into play.

"We've got to find a way to win, especially when they were down to 10 men".

England impressed in March's narrow 1-0 defeat in Germany, having been held to a 2-2 draw by Spain at Wembley after conceding twice late on last November.

"They were getting too much space in vital areas, even with ten men".

"We need to see the reality of where we are, you've got to test yourself against the best because otherwise it can mask where you might be as a team".

"We want to be courageous and play from the back and mistakes will happen".

"I simply told him that we were on their side because of what happened over there", Deschamps said. It was decided that Varane did not make an attempt to play the ball.

"But what we've got to do is manage games better, and we are aware of that".

France had the ball in the back of the net themselves five minutes later, but Giroud's crisp volley into the top corner was ruled out for offside and referee Davide Massa resisted the temptation to consult the video assistant referee available to him.

"We're seeing that not only in terms of responsibility but the way the group are prepared to contribute when we're discussing games, when we're reviewing games". But when a move breaks down — often due to rash, hurried passing or a lack of technique to control that awkward pass — players are often caught woefully out of position.
