Raphael Varane secured a 1-0 victory for France in their friendly clash against Sweden.

The Real Madrid defender nodded home the only goal of the game in the 83rd minute to give a much-changed Les Bleus the win.

France had the chances to make it a more comfortable evening at Marseille's Stade Velodrome but failed to take them, substitute Karim Benzema even missing a penalty four minutes from time.

The hosts showed eight changes from their previous match, a 1-1 draw against Albania, while Zlatan Ibrahimovich was the headline absentee for Sweden having been rested following a goalscoring effort in Montenegro on Saturday.
