Brave Wales come up short in Paris

France 2 Wales 0

By Phil Blanche

France underlined their status as World Cup contenders next summer with an impressive 2-0 friendly win over Wales in Paris.

Antoine Griezmann and Olivier Giroud scored as Wales endured a tough night in their first game since their own World Cup hopes were ended by the Republic of Ireland last month.

Chris Coleman was a helpless spectator in what could prove to be one of his final games in charge of Wales. Talks are set to resume between Coleman and the Football Association of Wales after Tuesday's friendly with Panama in Cardiff.

Although his side were well beaten at the Stade de France with the hosts striking the woodwork three times, there was encouragement for the future with the promising debuts of Ethan Ampadu and David Brooks and another impressive cameo from Ben Woodburn.

But France's front line of Griezmann, Giroud and Kylian Mbappe caused all sorts of problems.

Griezmann struck after 18 minutes and France put the game to bed on 72 minutes when Mbappe found Giroud and a deflection off James Chester ended up in the net.
