U.S. men earn tie with France
LYON, France — Kylian Mbappe struck a late equalizer as France drew with the United States
1-1 in its final World Cup warmup on Saturday.
The 19-year-old forward reacted swiftly from near the penalty spot in the 78th minute, turning in a cross from right back Benjamin Pavard after he was released down the right flank by forward Nabil Fekir.
France missed several first-half chances and was punished in the 44th when the U.S. scored with its first meaningful attack through forward Julian Green.
The goal came about thanks largely to a defensive blunder from right back Djibril Sidibe. He made a hash of a clearance and knocked the ball into the path of Green, who beat goalkeeper Hugo Lloris with a shot inside the near post.
