France ComeBack To Beat Sweeden

PogbaPaul Pogba and Dimitri Payet scored to rally France to a 2-1 win at home against Sweden and open a three-point lead over their opponents in Group A.

Emil Forsberg supplied Sweden with the lead in the 54th minute with a free kick from over 30 yards out that wrong-footed France keeper Hugo Lloris.

But Pogba brought Les Bleus back level within three minutes when he headed home Payet’s free kick despite Albin Ekdal’s attempt to hold the Manchester United player down.

And Payet put them ahead on 65 minutes, tapping home after Sweden keeper Robin Olsen mishandled the ball following a cross.
