Raphaël Varane registered seven minutes from time as France returned to winning ways with a 1-0 home success against a Sweden side deprived of injured captain Zlatan Ibrahimović. The Real Madrid CF defender scored a powerful header at the near post to seal the victory for Les Bleus. The UEFA EURO 2016 hosts dominated the tie at the Stade Vélodrome. Karim Benzema squandered the chance to double the lead after missing a late penalty. France were held by Albania on Friday.

Part of a makeshift centre-back pairing with Raphaël Varane on Friday in France's 1-1 draw with Albania in Rennes, AS Roma's Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa has pulled out of the squad for Tuesday's meeting with Sweden because of a hamstring injury.

Yanga-Mbiwa joins Mamadou Sakho, Laurent Koscielny, Eliaquim Mangala and Loïc Perrin on the injury list, meaning Chelsea FC's Kurt Zouma, 20, could win his first senior cap in Marseille.
