Paul Pogba scored a 30-yard free-kick and Kylian Mbappe netted twice as France beat World Cup hosts Russia in a friendly in St Petersburg.

Didier Deschamps made seven changes from the side that lost 3-2 to Colombia on Friday, including midfielder Pogba being recalled from the bench.



Pogba set up Mbappe’s opener and then curled home a long-range free-kick.

Deal of the day

Fedor Smolov pulled one back from close range before Mbappe added a late third through keeper Andrey Lunyov’s legs.
