France, drawn in Group C, begin their World Cup campaign against Australia on 16 June before facing Peru and Denmark.

Julian Green gave United States of America the lead in the 44th minute, the Americans' first ever goal against France, before youngster Kylian Mbappe equalised with 12 minutes remaining.

"We lacked a bit of juice". "It's normal, and when he does things well, he always has to do better. But we created enough chances to win", said coach Didier Deschamps on TF1.

"We regained the upper hand near the end". Paul Pogba, who has been heavily criticised after several under-par performances, started and put on a good display.

Djibril Sidibe failed to cleanly clear the ball and Green surged into the area to fire past Hugo Lloris on the stroke of halftime.

The hosts were back on the front foot moments later as Antoine Griezmann played a unsafe cross into the box which Olivier Giroud got his head to, but failed to summon enough power to trouble Zack Steffen in the US goal. Mbappe came close with a curled free kick in the 69th, just before Griezmann was substituted by Nabil Fekir.

France equalised in the 78th minute as Mbappe converted substitute Benjamin Pavard's cross to notch his fourth worldwide goal.

Further chances fell to Pogba and Griezmann, neither of whom managed to get their efforts on target, before the USA hit their opponents with a suckerpunch right on the stroke of half time.
