Afro Voice (Northern Cape) - - SPORT -

SAINT PETERSBURG: Kylian Mbappe scored twice and Paul Pogba net­ted a bril­liant free kick as France beat World Cup hosts Rus­sia 3-1 in a friendly at Saint Petersburg on Tues­day. Mbappe’s im­pres­sive dou­ble and Pogba’s strike helped the 1998 world cham­pi­ons bounce back from Fri­day’s 3-2 home de­feat by Colom­bia. “We al­ways have this abil­ity to score and we man­aged three goals,” coach Di­dier Deschamps said. – AFP
