Goodbye

Wins in tonight's friendly matches for Italy, Sweden and Spain.

A bad night for interim Netherlands boss Fred Grim and Cristiano Ronaldo.

But a word for video technology, which was deployed in at the Stade de France, used by the referee with the correct outcome on each occasion.

Game changer.

Join us on Saturday as Premier League football returns.

Until then.

France 0-2 Spain

Euro 2016 finalists beaten at home.

CLOSE!

France 0-2 Spain

Inch-perfect play from Spain and Gerard Deulofeu works the ball to David Silva on the left edge of the box, but the Manchester City player's low shot is weak and dribbles wide of goal.

France 0-2 Spain

France substitute Thomas Lemar has seen a lot of the ball in the middle of the park since coming on.

If there's any justice in the world, Spain will allow him to grab a consolation goal for his side.

France 0-2 Spain

Antoine Griezmann gets on the end of Ousmane Dembele's cross, but his header is over the crossbar.

Was just a little too high for the little Atletico Madrid man.

Oh my giddy aunt.

Cristiano Ronaldo's homecoming has hit the skids as Sweden score an injury-time winner through a Cavaco Cancelo own goal.

That's a three-goal comeback from the Swedes - sans Zlatan.

France 0-2 Spain

Ousmane Dembele is a #player but not on this occasion.

The Borussia Dortmund man attempts an overhead kick from inside the area, but it is not his best and flies into the stand.

Martin O'Neill's side beaten in Dublin.

Just to recap...

France have had a goal disallowed because of the video assistant - the correct decision

Disallowed goal to being allowed

France 0-2 Spain

On-loan AC Milan winger Gerard Deulofeu gets on the end of Jordi Alba's cross to convert the second.

The Spaniard celebrates but the assistant's flag is up.

Disallowed? No, wait.

The referee consults with his video assistant, who checks and sees Deulofeu is actually on side and the goal is given.

CORRECT decision once again. Cannot argue with video technology thus far.

Spain celebrate

Video technology involved again.

Four minutes of injury time to play in Dublin.

GOAL - Portugal 2-2 Sweden

Viktor Claesson (76 mins)

Portugal were coasting at 2-0 up - but maybe they've been on the Madeira wine at half-time, as Viktor Claesson's second goal of the night has restored parity.

Stone waller.

Big man Olivier Giroud readying himself to come on for France, carefully placing his t-shirt over his hair to make sure a strand does not go out of place.

What a pro.

France 0-0 Spain

Superb stuff from Pedro, picking out Alvaro Morata with a cute outside-of-the-foot through ball, but the Real Madrid man snatches at the chance and screws his shot wide of goal.

Must say, there were no protests from the France players to that Antonie Griezmann goal being disallowed.

Everyone on board then?

Kenny Kong‏: History made in international football... naturally it is to rule out a goal for offside.

Kerry Leach: Great to see TV ref at work in the France v Spain fixture. Can't happen soon enough across the professional game.

France 0-0 Spain

What do we make of that then?

The goal was given, the players were trotting back to the half way line, before the video assistant intervened.

It didn't take long, around 30 seconds, the right decision was made and on we go with the game.

DISALLOWED GOAL

France 0-0 Spain

Hold on.

It has been chalked off.

Christophe Jaillet's cross is headed across the box by Layvin Kurzawa and Antoine Griezmann can nod in.

The referee awarded the goal, but then got a word in his ear from the video assistant to say Kurzawa was offside.

CORRECT decision and video technology has worked on this occasion.

Republic of Ireland 0-1 Iceland

Republic of Ireland winger Aiden McGeady is closing in on a century of caps for his country.

David de Gea left flapping, you don't say that too often.

A let off for the Spaniards.
