A memorable strike from Kylian Mbappé got France's UEFA Nations League campaign off to a winning start in Sweden.

Sweden vs France: as it happened

Match in brief

A moment of magic from Mbappé secured France all three points in their opener against Sweden. The striker scored from an almost impossible angle just before the break, beating Robin Olsen at his near post. It was the only shot on target the visitors mustered all night, and they were grateful to Hugo Lloris for a fine save to deny Marcus Berg with the score at 0-0.

Lloris denied Emil Forsberg in the second half and substitute John Guidetti snatched at a late chance, but it could have been two right at the end when Anthony Martial was brought down by Victor Lindelöf in the area only for Antoine Griezmann to smash the penalty over the crossbar.
