France edges Sweden in soccer friendly

In soccer, France scored the only goal of the game 6 minutes before time ran out, to defeat visiting Sweden in Marseille Tuesday, 1-0.

Sweden was playing the friendly football match without its star Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who was allowed to rest after playing in last week’s Euro qualifier against Montenegro.

Swedish Radio Sports commentator Ralf Edström says the national team started weakly but adds, “It was a completely different Sweden in the second half”, with better and better defence.
