Gareth Southgate takes positives from England's defeat to 10-man France

"I thought we looked more anxious while they went to 10 and they stepped up a level", Southgate said.

Just minutes into the second half, though, and it was advantage England when Rafael Varane was sent off and Kane converted from the following penalty.

The hosts then took the lead just before half-time when Dembele left John Stones with a lovely piece of skill and though his shot was saved by Heaton, the rebound was turned in by Djibril Sidibe, who also scored his first worldwide goal.

France wasted a glorious opportunity shortly after the quarter of an hour mark when Monaco's much-hyped teenager Kylian Mbappe hared down the left flank, only for his clever pass into the penalty area to be sliced wide by Dembele.

This, however, was an uncomfortable night for a player Southgate will be counting on in the future.

Kane's penalty restored parity for England but, despite their numerical disadvantage following the dismissal of Varane, Didier Deschamps' team ran out winners, with Dembele scoring the decisive goal.

It is unclear whether it was a mistake or whether McGregor did it on goal , as he is known to provoke his opponents. His long time partner, Dee Devlin, gave birth to a baby boy, Conor McGregor Jr.

England failed to get a result against France, just as they did in their 1-0 defeat by Germany in March.

"I think both players had some really good moments and it's hard to assess without watching it back, but I thought there were definitely positive individual performances", he added.

Confusion reigned for a minute inside the Stade de France as referee Davide Massa waited to hear from the video assistant team of Marco Guida and Massimiliano Irrati.

"And equally we saw the things that have to get better - defending as a team and the managing the game, in particular the period once France had gone down to 10 men".

"But what we've got to do is manage games better, and we are aware of that".

The Premier League golden boot victor had not played under Southgate until this get together and it is not hard to see why he is so central to England's plans.

"I thought [England's 3-4-3 system] worked really well, up to the point at 2-2, and gave us good options".

"We need to see the reality of where we are, you've got to test yourself against the best because otherwise it can mask where you might be as a team".

"But we've a bit to do and I think it's important that as a group of players and a group of staff we recognise that".

Southgate made six changes to his line-up following the 2-2 World Cup qualifying draw in Scotland, while Kane again wore the captain s armband. "They received us very well when we came to Wembley after the attacks in Paris".
