France were held to a 1-1 draw at home to the USA despite fielding a strong side in their final match before the World Cup gets under way in Russia.

Didier Deschamps' side dominated but fell behind to Julian Green's smart finish past Tottenham's Hugo Lloris.

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

Olivier Giroud was withdrawn after a clash of heads with Chelsea team-mate Matt Miazga in Lyon.

Antoine Griezmann and Paul Pogba both had several attempts from long range but were left frustrated by the visitors.

Manchester United midfielder Pogba struck the post, while Nabil Fekir was denied in the final moments of the game by goalkeeper Zack Steffen.

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