Mbappe scored his 14th goal for France in what was his side’s only shot on target

Kylian Mbappe scored a fine winning goal as France began their Nations League campaign with victory in Sweden.

Paris St-Germain forward Mbappe, 21, cut in from the left flank and weaved past three defenders before slotting home a cool finish at the near post.

World champions France host Croatia in Group A3 on Tuesday (19:45 BST).

The Croatians go into the game having suffered a 4-1 defeat against Nations League holders Portugal, who were without the injured Cristiano Ronaldo.

Manchester City defender Joao Cancelo, Wolves midfielder Diogo Jota and Atletico Madrid forward Joao Felix had all netted to put the European champions 3-0 up.

Bruno Petkovic pulled a goal back in injury-time, but there was still time for Andre Silva to grab a fourth for the hosts in Lisbon.
