El Don Carter: Neymar can be a Brazil great definitely. His records at 23 is staggering, he only needs to win few trophies and that's it.

France 1-3 Brazil

Meanwhile, France will look to bounce back from this sobering defeat when they return to the Stade de France on Sunday. Denmark will be the opposition.

France 1-3 Brazil

So the France and Brazil players will be enjoying a well-earned post-match scrub before going back to the team hotel to chill out in front of the telly later.

But then it will be back to the grind for all of them on Sunday. Brazil take on South American rivals Chile in a friendly. In London, of course. And guess what? You will not miss a kick in our live text coverage of that match at the Emirates Stadium.

Tamrat Demllie: Well deserved Brazil, and poor defence from France. France look dangerous when they attack but great credit to Brazil midfielder.

Opta Jean: France have conceded three goals at the Stade de France for the second time, after their 2-3 loss v Russia on 5 June 1999.

Sholly: This overrated Brazil team will keep winning friendlies. When they get to the big stage, they will be thumped

FULL-TIME

France 1-3 Brazil

So what have we learned from those 90 minutes in Paris? In a nutshell, France don't look anywhere near good enough to win Euro 2016 at the moment. Brazil are nowhere near finished as a footballing force. And Premier League managers can sleep well tonight knowing none of their players have picked up knocks.

@FootballBlog79: Brazil look good against France, but as England always find out to their dismay, friendlies mean nothing.

FULL-TIME

France 1-3 Brazil

And there it is. Italian ref Nicola Rizzoli toots his whistle for the final time tonight, ending France's misery against a very happy Brazilian squad.

France 1-3 Brazil

The game is petering out to a close now, neither side is creating anything. A midfield snooze-fest while we wait for the whistle.

SUBSTITUTION

France 1-3 Brazil

Here's the fourth official again - he's been the star of the show in the last 10 minutes. Real Madrid left-back Marcelo appears for his first appearance in a Selecao shirt since the World Cup.

INJURY TIME

France 1-3 Brazil

The fourth official hoists his electronic board into the air again - but not for a substitution. This time he is telling us that there will be four minutes of stoppage time. Four minutes for France to claim an unlikely draw.

SUBSTITUTION

France 1-3 Brazil

This match is like a spluttering motor with a learner driver at the wheel. Stop, start. Stop, start. More subs, this time for Brazil, as Firmino is swapped for Luiz Adriano, before Manchester City's Fernandinho comes on for the final finale.

SUBSTITUTION

France 1-3 Brazil

Not much action on the pitch at the moment - it is all on the touchline. Jose Mourinho will be pleased to see Chelsea midfielder Oscar given a short breather in place of Souza.

SUBSTITUTION

France 1-3 Brazil

This match is beginning to become very stop start. Brazil's Douglas Costa replaces Willian, while Olivier Giroud - making his first France appearance since the World Cup - appears in place of Blaise Matuidi.

SUBSTITUTION

France 1-3 Brazil

And here is the said France substitution. Marseille forward Dimitri Payet trots on for Mathieu Valbuena.

France 1-3 Brazil

France look to be preparing another change as Brazil midfielder Oscar clatters into PSG's Blaise Matuidi. That one was for PSG knocking Chelsea out of the Champions League...

France 1-3 Brazil

Fair play to the French fans - I can't see many escaping the Stade de France for an early dash to the Paris Metro. But their team need a goal - sharpish - if they are going to salvage something here.

France 1-3 Brazil

France waste a free-kick in a promising position on the left, Mathieu Valbuena overcooking his pass as the ball drifts out for a goal kick. That raises a smile from ex-Brazil striker Ronaldo, who is sat in the gantry as he returns to the Stade de France - the scene of one of the lowest days of his stellar career of course.

SUBSTITUTION

France 1-3 Brazil

Remarkably for an international friendly, it has taken until the final quarter of the match for the changes to start rolling. France make a double change as they search for an equaliser, Lyon wonderkid Nabil Fekir and Monaco midfielder Geoffrey Kondogbia entering the action in place of Newcastle's Moussa Sissoko and Antoine Griezmann of Atletico Madrid.

Folabi Shobowale: 3-1 to Brazil against France, shocking defending from the French for that third goal. So much work left to do for Deschamps.

France 1-3 Brazil

Virtual silence in a shell-shocked Stade de France. And not because Luis Gustavo - not known for his goalscoring prowess - is the man who has bagged. France coach Didier Deschamps looks incredulous, muttering something unrepeatable - I assume - under his breath.

France 1-3 Brazil

And here they come again. Willian is first to the ball and with one thought on his mind. His clever low strike is saved by the very busy France keeper Steve Mandanda.

GOAL

France 1-3 Brazil - Luis Gustavo

And I thought it was Brazil who were supposed to be rubbish at defending set-pieces? Woeful marking by the French, who allow the freedom of the penalty area to Luis Gustavo. And the Wolfsburg midfielder makes no mistake, heading down into the turf and up into the roof of the French net.

France 1-2 Brazil

But France do look vulnerable at the back. Steve Mandanda is needed again to claw away a Neymar shot. Corner to Brazil...

France 1-2 Brazil

Time to see if France are the ones that I want (in the office Euro 2016 sweepstake). The hosts are expecting to challenge for the continental championship in about 15 months' time. But you would think they would have to show more cutting edge if they are to win a third European title.

CLOSE!

France 1-2 Brazil

Ooooh la la! France almost have a goal to purr over. Antoine Griezmann shows neater footwork than Danny Zuko to wriggle into space, before arrowing a long-range drive towards the target. But the ball whistles just over....

France 1-2 Brazil

Encouraging signs from the French as they try to haul themselves back on terms. The home crowd, including one bloke who has a Homer Simpson banner, are stretching their vocal chords again as Les Bleus attack....

(NOT SO) CLOSE!

France 1-2 Brazil

Time to roll out that old 'like London buses' line - because three France chances have just pulled up at the Stade de France. First, Thiago Silva has to be alert to put a dangerous cross out for a corner, then Moussa Sissoko sees his angled drive smothered by Brazil keeper Jefferson. Finally, France skipper Karim Benzema lashes a wild volley high over the crossbar. He really should have scored there.

Neymar - one of the greats?

Neymar - that is 43 goals in 61 games for Brazil now. He is still just 23.

By the time he retires, where will he rank among the Brazilian greats?

GOAL

France 1-2 Brazil - Neymar

And there it is - Brazil nab the lead! Another wonderful flowing attack from the Selecao ends in Neymar (who else) smashing in an unstoppable rising shot. The Barcelona attacker thumps the ball past Steve Mandanda at his near post. The France keeper would barely have seen that as it whizzed past his eyeline...

France 1-1 Brazil

The visitors are having some joy here. Another low centre from the right flank is cut out by Morgan Schneiderlin's sliding tackle, before Firmino's header bounces wide.

France 1-1 Brazil

Brazil right-back Danilo pounds forward down the flank, only to see his cross cut out by the French defence.

France 1-1 Brazil

France, unbeaten since their World Cup exit remember, look relatively assured at the back. Liverpool centre-back Mamadou Sakho holds off Neymar to marshal a hopeful punt from Brazil back into the safety of Steve Mandanda's hands.

GREAT SAVE!

France 1-1 Brazil

Now it is the turn of France keeper Steve Mandanda to feel leather on his gloves. The Marseille man drops sharply to his right, sticking out a big glove to fend off Luis Gustavo's fierce drive from outside the French area.

France 1-1 Brazil

France start on the front foot. Les Bleus win a free-kick about 30 yards out, with Dynamo Moscow creative midfielder Mathieu Valbuena standing over the ball. But he wastes the set-piece. Valbuena floats the ball into the area, over the heads of his team-mates, and into Jefferson's hands.
