Sweden last-gasp winner against France levelled them on points with France atop Group A when Ola Toivonen struck from midfield in stoppage time to beat an out-of-position Hugo Lloris claiming  a 2-1 victory in Stockholm.

Lloris made a huge blunder while trying to dribble the ball out of his own box misplaying a pass to midfield that Toivonen struck first time from 58 yards away, beating the France keeper before he could get back and sending the crowd into wild jubilations.

Olivier Giroud opened the scoring for the french ,minutes after missing a close-range header with a superb volley from the left side of Sweden’s penalty area that left Robin Olsen no chance giving Les Bleus a 1-0 lead.

But just ahead of half-time, Sweden levelled up with a fine indiviudal effort from Jimmy Durmaz, who lashed home a half-volley from a Ludwig Augustinsson cross to make it 1-1 at the break.

With neither team able to break the deadlock, Didier Deschamps brought on Kylian Mbappe and Thomas Lemar for Antoine Griezmann and Dimitri Payet in the 75th minute.

Lemar nearly set Giroud up with his first touch of the game, but his in-swinging cross was just out of the reach for the Arsenal striker at the back post.
