Rangers star Glen Kamara caught the eye in Lyon as Finland fell to a 2-0 defeat against France as the Ibrox midfielder held his own against a star-studded Les Blues midfield.

Paul Pogba and Adrien Rabiot started in the middle of the park for World Champions France with newly re-signed Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann starting just in front of them.

But for Finland, this was a worthwhile exercise, and they still very much remain in the hunt for a playoff place with rivals Ukraine yet to win (or lose) in an open race to Qatar 2022.
