France prepared for its next matches in the Nations League with a shock 2-0 home defeat to Finland, as the 12-game series unbeaten surprisingly ended on Wednesday.

Marcus Force and Uni Valacari scored in the first half to give Finland its first victory over France, after losing all eight of their previous encounters in the match at the Stade de France

World champions France dominated the ball and got their first clear chance when Marcus Thuram’s header hit the crossbar, but Didier Deschamps’ side, without injured Kylian Mbappe, lacked inspiration the whole time.

Les Bleus, whose last defeat was in June 2019 when she lost 2-0 away to Turkey in Euro 2020 qualifiers, faces Portugal away on Saturday and Sweden at home on Tuesday in League A, Group 3 of the Nations League

Thuram, the son of Lilian Thuram, could make his debut at Stade de France – his father scored just two goals in his long international career in the World Cup semi-finals against Croatia in 1998

Two minutes after hitting the crossbar, Borussia striker Moenchengladbach fired another good opportunity from close range and tried his luck with a striking shot a few minutes later.

With Thuram investigating the left flank and teaming up well with striker Wissam Ben Yedder, the French seemed to be in complete control only to give up twice in quick succession

Force put the visitors ahead of the game, beating goalkeeper Steve Mandanda from close range in Finland’s first attempt at the match in the 28th minute.

Deschamps replaced Olivier Giroud for Anthony Martial in the 57th minute. The deeply disappointing Paul Pogba with N’Golo Kante, but the changes had little effect.
