France topped Group E despite playing out a goalless draw with Ecuador on Wednesday night.

Any chance Ecuador had of securing the win they needed to qualify for the last 16 were scuppered by the sending-off of  Antonio Valencia on 50 minutes. The Man Utd winger saw red for a bad challenge on Lucas Digne but despite having a man advantage, a much-changed French XI couldn’t find a goal, with Paul Pogba going closest.

France now face Nigeria in the last 16 while Ecuador go home.
