Last Updated: 09/06/17 10:01pm
Olivier Giroud scored a brilliant goal for France but they lost 2-1 to Sweden at the Friends Arena on Friday night.
The Arsenal forward had just returned to the pitch following a clash of heads when he received the ball, flicked it up onto his left foot and buried his strike past goalkeeper Robin Olsen.
Sweden equalised immediately thanks to a fine first-time finish by Jimmy Durmaz and the hosts completed the comeback in dramatic fashion in stoppage time.
A poor clearance by Tottenham 'keeper Hugo Lloris fell to Ola Toivonen and the former Sunderland loanee fired home from the half-way line.
It capped an absorbing match in Stockholm as Sweden secured three points to move above France to top Group A.
Elsewhere in the group, Netherlands beat Luxembourg 5-0 in Dick Advocaat's first game in charge since replacing Danny Blind and Belarus beat Bulgaria 2-1.
