Luton keeper Simon Sluga was left on the bench yet again as Croatia lost their Nations League clash against World champions France this evening, going down 2-1 in Zagreb.

Antoine Griezmann slammed home the opener via the underside of the bar after eight minutes, as manager Zlatko Dalić preferred Dinamo Zagreb stopper Dominik Livaković between the posts once more

Former Everton midfielder Nikola Vlasic netted an equaliser just after the hour mark, to level the Group A3 contest.

However, Paris Saint-Germain start Kylian Mbappe bagged the winner, notching a 16th international goal with 11 minutes remaining from Lucas Digne's brilliant cross.

Manchester United forward Anthony Martial somehow side-footed wide from six yards out for France, while Ivan Perisic curled a free-kick narrowly over.

Croatia should have found another leveller in injury time but ex-Leicester striker Andrej Kramaric shot straight at Spurs keeper Hugo Lloris from inside the box.
