France and England finish level at 1-1

France and England cancelled each other out in a 1-1 Euro 2012 Group D draw that began full of energy and invention but slowed into a tight clash as the players tired in the Ukraine heat on Monday.

England were full of running early on and, after James Milner missed a sitter, they went ahead on the half-hour when centre back Joleon Lescott met a Steven Gerrard free kick to head in his first international goal.

Samir Nasri brought France deservedly level with a well-struck low drive from the edge of the box in the 39th minute, moments after England keeper Joe Hart had produced a great save to keep out a thundering Alou Diarra header.

Ukraine take on Sweden in the other Group D game in Kiev later on Monday to complete the first round of matches.
