Ousmane Dembele scored a brilliant goal and Samuel Umtiti and Antoine Griezmann were also on target as France beat Italy 3-1 in a friendly on Friday.
Umtiti opened the scoring after just eight minutes as he slotted home from close range after the goalkeeper could only parry a free kick aimed towards Kylian Mbappe at the far post.
Griezmann added a second from the penalty spot on the half-hour mark before Leonardo Bonucci pulled one back for Italy.
However, Dembele restored France’s two-goal lead with a curler into the top corner after 63 minutes.
Take a bow Dembélé. What a goal from an insane curler! pic.twitter.com/xexNVI676q— Barca Centre Media (@bcentremedia) June 1, 2018

It’s great to see Dembele in the starting XI for France and also scoring goals for his country after a tough first season at Barcelona.
France have one more fixture before the World Cup starts, they play the United States on Saturday June 9th in Lyon before heading to Russia.
