Highlights

90+2'

Sagna lifts a cross for Griezmann at the near post, and his fierce header flies over the bar. That's full time, and a very easy win for France. They'll have to suspend their summer holidays, for a good while they hope. The Scottish start theirs after a really limited showing.

90+1' 

There will be two minutes of added time.

90' 

Pogba almost slips in Digne inside the box on the left, but Anya tracks back to concede a corner.

89' 

France continue to tease Scotland, waiting for them to actually do something constructive.

87'

Kante for Sissoko.

84'

McKay is on for Scotland, too.

83'

Cabaye tries to lift the ball over Marshall into the net, but it's just over, after Pogba set him up. Evra is swapped for Digne.

82' 

There's about 10 minutes left to go, and France are bossing it. They're lazily keeping the ball but they're doing it just outside the Scotland box.

80'

Pogba sends a free kick just over the top corner after Mulgrew clipped Griezmann as he burst towards goal.

78' 

The French social media team is very keen on the idea of pride.

76' 

There are chants around the stadium as French fans come to terms with being favourites for another tournament.

74' 

More French possession.

72' 

Martial flicks the ball inside for Cabaye, on the edge of the box, but his shot at goal is easily saved.

71' 

France keeping the ball in defence again. They've had a lot of changes so it would be no surprise if they're just resting and getting used to the new players.

68'

Gignac is put through on goal but he can't beat Marshall, who stands up tall to block. Matuidi replaced by Cabaye.

67' 

Ritchie has a corner headed away by Pogba, who has been France's best player tonight.

66'

Kingsley for Snodgrass.

64'

Pogba fires in a free kick from the edge of the box. It rattles the post with Marshall static.

62'

Matuidi is brought down on the edge of the box. Before the free kick is taken, Gignac comes on for Giroud, who is cheered off after boos in previous matches.

60' 

French banter.

59' 

A long shot from Pogba wins a corner. It's taken short to Martial, who dances into the box, past Ritchie, and his low pass into the box is blocked by Marshall for a corner.

58'

Naismith replaces Steven Fletcher.

56' 

Ritchie curls in a free kick from the right, and it's headed away. The French attack down the right, but then settle for keeping the ball in defence.

54'

Rami heads downwards with a deflected header from a corner, but the 'keeper gets down quickly. Anya is on too for Scotland, by the way, replacing Robertson.

51' 

France are now in total control and are sitting back and waiting.

50' 

Koscielny heads behind Griezmann's corner.

49' 

Matuidi just keeps the ball in play, it comes to Martial, and his pull back for Pogba is deflected away.

47' 

Not much going on yet, as the two sides need to find their rhythm.

46'

Martial and Griezmann on for France with Coman and Payet off, and Mulgrew on for Scotland. Maloney off for Scotland.

45+1'

That's half time. See you in 15 minutes.

45' 

An extra minute of the first half to be played.

43' 

France are sitting back, presumably happy for half-time and the ensuing subs to take place.

41' 

Evra is down in the box, rubbing his shin. He seems like he'll be ok after some treatment.

39'

GOAL! France 3-0 Scotland. Koscielny scores - A corner is sent into the box from the left, is headed into the air and drops to Mautuidi on the edge of the box, and Marshall blocks his shot to concede another corner. The next corner comes in for Koscielny, and this time Marshall has no chance with his header, who heads in a flick-on totally unmarked.

38'

Pogba's reverse pass in for Matuidi, ahead of him in the left and in the box, leads to a shot which is deflected wide at the near post.

35'

GOAL! France 2-0 Scotland. Giroud scores - A quick move forward allows Payet to drive forward. He shoots from distance, across Marshall who parries the effort, but it's into the path of Giroud who finishes easily.

32' 

Ever since the goal, the two teams have largely been happy to play this out without much ambition. Presumably they're just counting down the minutes 'til they can get to the museums.

30' 

Kante dispossesses Maloney on the halfway line and drives forward. France take their time, and Scotland drop back to defend, and the danger never comes to a head.

29' 

Corner on the right for Payet. He whips in a cross, to the back post, and it's cleared. France keep hold of it, Matuidi sends in a cross of him own, and Marshall lunges to claim.

26' 

A loose pass from Payet ends a move where France had skipped down the left wing with confidence.

24' 

The French pay tribute to Giroud.

23' 

Pogba tracks back on the left to slide in and tackle Darren Fletcher, driving down the left wing.

21' 

Ritchie's free kick is headed out. It comes back out to Ritchie who crosses again, and this time Greer is penalised for being offside.

20' 

Snodgrass goes to grown as Koscielny runs next to him. It's a cheap free kick on the right wing, cleverly won.

19' 

More gently played French possession.

17'

The ball is worked to Coman on the left. He cuts in from the wing and drills a low shot at the near corner, which Marshall gets behind well.

16' 

France are keeping the ball patiently in defence.

15' 

Payet fires in a cross which is cleared but the French keep hold of it. Payet flicks the ball to Evra, who after some neat control flicks a cross over everyone.

14' 

Free kick for France near their area after a handball. This game has died a little since the goal.

12' 

Not much happening at the moment, to be honest.

10' 

Coman is barged over on the right wing for a foul.

8'

GOAL! France 1-0 Scotland. Giroud scores - France attack down the right with Sagna. He clips in a low cross for Giroud, who flicks in a finish at the near post.

6'

Payet drills in a low cross to the box that forces Giroud into a smart save to his right. Giroud had been waiting for it, but the touch came from a defender.

5' 

Greer grapples with Giroud and concedes a free kick for France to cross into the box.

3' 

Scotland keep possession in their half.

2' 

An early corner for France on the left wing. Payet takes, and it's scuffed away. France win it back with a poor clearance from Hanley, but Pogba's cross wins a corner on the right wing this time.

1'

The match gets underway.

19:55 

Minutes from kick off now.

19:50 

If you've comments you'd like me to include in the report then tweet me at @lxndrnthrtn.

19:45 

France's manager, Didier Deschamps is, apparently, going to sue Eric Cantona for comments he made over the exclusion of Hatem Ben Arfa and Benzema. Let's see if it proves a distraction.

19:40 

The French will be expecting to build on an impressive qualification period (granted, they only played friendlies but they had the results that would have put them top of any group). Without Benzema they might struggle, but this is not a system that asks much more of its striker than to be present.

19:35 

You can watch the French team warm up here.

19:30 

Scotland get to see Metz, which is nice for them as it's growing into the idea of becoming a city of culture. Other than that, they're here to make up the numbers.

19:25 

France have no choice but to start Olivier Giroud in attack, but he is the one weak link in that side. There are imperfections, certainly, but the rest of that eleven are at worst reliable, at best world class.

19:20

TEAMS: France: Lloris, Sagna, Evra, Koscielny, Rami, Kante, Matuidi, Pogba, Payet, Coman, Giroud. /// Scotland: Marshall, Martin, Greer, Hanley, Robertson, D.
