A Sidney Govou brace secured France a 3-2 victory over Sweden as both sides plan for the beginning of the 2010 World Cup qualifiers.
Veteran striker Henrik Larsson had given Sweden a fifth minute lead at Nya Ullevi Stadion, but Karim Benzema restored parity 14 minutes later.
The scores remained level in the first half but, after the interval, Govou turned match-winner.
Lyon star Govou netted his first shortly after the hour-mark and then gave France a comfortable two-goal cushion in the 77th minute.
Kim Kallstrom hit an 85th minute consolation for Sweden from the penalty spot, but France secured the win.
