29 March 2017, 8:13:54

Sports Desk:Spain finished France's seven-game unbeaten run as substitutes David Silva and Gerard Deulofeu scored second-half goals to secure a 2-0 win over the European Championship runner-up in a friendly at the Stade de France on Tuesday.

It was France's first loss since its 1-0 defeat to Portugal at the same venue in the Euro 2016 final last summer.

The match also saw the first use in France of video replays to assist the referee, with the technology being used to assure Deulofeu's goal and to disallow one for France's Antoine Griezmann just after halftime.


France striker Antoine Griezmann had a goal ruled out by a video assistant referee for offside.
