In action for the French were stars like Antoine Griezmann, Paul Pogba, N’Golo Kante, Olivier Giroud and Raphael Varane.

The French had won their last three friendly games prior to the draw against USA.

Their last defeat was a 3-2 home loss against Colombia in March this year.

They will open their World Cup campaign next Saturday against Australia in Group C on June 16.
