    The 18-year-old hits an emphatic winner in last night’s 3-2 friendly success over England in Brest

    Kingsley Coman scored 17 minutes from time as his France Under-21 side rallied from two goals down to beat England 3-2 in Brest on Monday evening.

    Harry Kane’s brace saw the Young Lions coast into a 2-0 advantage after 22 minutes but Les Bleuets hit back through captain Yaya Sanogo who notched a double of his own to level proceedings at the break.

    France completed a deserved comeback when Coman – on for Florian Thauvin just after the hour-mark – powered his shot into the top corner on 73 minutes to settle an entertaining encounter.

    Tonight sees the Bianconeri’s international involvement come to an end with seven players pencilled in to represent their respective sides in various friendlies.

    Alvaro Morata – fresh from making his competitive debut against Belarus on Saturday – is part of the Spain squad for this evening’s meeting with world champions Germany in Vigo whilst Leonardo Bonucci and Sebastian Giovinco are in contention to appear for the Azzurri against Albania in Genoa.

    Elsewhere, Carlos Tevez returns to Old Trafford – where he spent two years with Manchester United from 2007 to 2009 – alongside Roberto Pereyra as they face Portugal.

    Meanwhile, midfield dynamos Paul Pogba and Arturo Vidal could also be in action as France take on Sweden in Marseille and La Roja host Uruguay in Santiago de Chile.
