Tottenham's Hugo Lloris concedes late 50-yard howler as Sweden defeats France

The video of Giroud's stunning goal is provided below.

Ola Toivonen took advantage of a Hugo Lloris error to score an injury-time victor from inside his own half as Sweden beat France in their World Cup qualifier in Stockholm.

Unfortunately for the Swedes, Dimitri Payet's initial cross wasn't dealt with in an orderly fashion, allowing the ball to drop at the feet of Giroud, who buried his attempt majestically.

Sweden hit back just before the break when midfielder Jimmy Durmaz lashed in an angled drive. If we didn't win this game, we should have got a draw.

In the wake of his country's defeat, former French worldwide and current manager of Les Bleus, Didier Deschamps, was asked about Lloris' mistake. It is unfortunate for him and for the whole team.

The Tottenham goalkeeper particularly highlighted the threat of winger Emil Forsberg, who actually gave Sweden the lead during the match at the Stade de France.

Paul Pogba went close to handing France the lead 10 minutes into the second half, but his strike from the edge of the area sailed narrowly wide of the upright.

Before the remarks, Trump laid a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, touching it for a long moment before stepping away. But they also admitted to some frustration over the confusion in many people's minds about the meaning of Memorial Day .

Coming into this match, France had the flawless confidence boost after beating Paraguay 5-0 in a friendly last Friday.

Sweden is the second team those who all played well and won three games against Luxembourg (0-1), Bulgaria (0-3), and Belarus (0-4).

Lloris, however, then threw the point away for France as he for some reason chose to dribble out of his area and play a long, low pass right into Sweden's midfield. We had to fight a bit harder than in the first match.

Portugal's forward Cristiano Ronaldo (C) celebrate scoring with his teammates during the FIFA World Cup 2018 qualification football match between Latvia and Portugal in Riga, on June 9, 2017.

A win at the Friends Arena in Solna would have moved European Championship runners-up France six points clear of Sweden.

Veterans Wesley Sneijder - on his national record 131st appearance - and Arjen Robben scored in the first half.

He chose to take a touch after receiving the ball back, but his punt forward went straight to former Sunderland man Toivonen.
