Antoine Griezmann gave Les Bleus the lead after just 6 minutes, before Arsenal star Olivier Giroud doubled the lead with a classy first-time finish from inside the box.

The Dutch fought back to 2-2 through Luuk de John and Ibrahim Afellay, but Didier Deschamps’ men prevailed, as Blaise Matuidi netted the winner minutes from time.
