The Indomitable Lions of Cameroon lost 3-2 to Euro 2016 hosts France in a friendly in Nantes Monday night.

France went in front through Blaise Matuidi after 20 minutes, but FC Porto striker Vincent Aboubakar drew the Africans level two minutes later.

Arsenal star Olivier Giroud then restored the leadership for France four minutes from the interval thanks to an assist by Paul Pogba.

Germany-based Maxim Choupo-Moting will then equalise for Cameroon two minutes from time, before West Ham forward Dimitri Payet conjured a match-winning free kick on the stroke of full time.
