France Suffer Shock Home Loss

France 0-2 Finland

France suffered a rare defeat on home soil after going down 2-0 to Finland in an international friendly on Wednesday night.

Paul Pogba and Olivier Giroud were on the only first-team regulars to start for the 2018 World Cup winners.

Two first-half goals from Marcus Forss and Onni Valakari were enough to give Finland a famous win at the Stade de France, despite the likes of Antoine Griezmann and Anthony Martial coming on in the second half.

Netherlands 1-1 Spain

Frank de Boer remains winless after four games in charge of the Netherlands, who drew 1-1 with Spain on Wednesday night.

Alvaro Morata and Koke were handed starts after lengthy absence from the national side while Hector Bellerin also earned start after replacing the injured Jesus Navas.

Spain got the scoring underway on 18 minutes as Sergio Canales bagged his first senior goal with a neat strike into the bottom corner.

However, the encounter finished all square thanks to Manchester United's Donny van Beek netting the equaliser for the Dutch shortly after the break.

Germany 1-0 Czech Republic

Luca Waldschmidt's 14th minute strike was enough to hand Germany a 1-0 win over Czech Republic.

The Germans face Spain in UEFA Nations League action on Sunday while the Czechs hosts Israel.

Belgium 2-1 Switzerland

Belgium rallied from behind to defeat Switzerland 2-1 ahead of their clash with France on Sunday.

With the Belgians fielding a second-string outfit, the visitors took the lead through Admir Mehemdi's strike in the 12th minute

The Red Devils hit back in the second half, with on-loan Crystal Palace striker Michy Batshuayi bagging a brace.

Italy 4-0 Estonia

Italy warmed up for their UEFA Nations League clash with a 4-0 victory over Poland.

Vincenzo Grifo gave the Azzurri the lead in the 14th minute, before Federico Bernardeschi doubled the advantage in the 27th minute.

Grifo completed his brace from the penalty spot on 75 minutes before Riccardo Orsolini completed the rout with a penalty of his own 10 minutes later.
