France 1-1 Chile: Laurent Blanc's men held to draw in controversial circumstances

France were held to a 1-1 draw at home by Chile thanks to a combination of questionable officiating and steely resolve from the South American visitors.

Laurent Blanc’s men took a first half lead through Loic Remy but were denied a second after the linesman incorrectly ruled Remy to have interfered with Kevin Gameiro's shot which ended up in the net. Chile then grabbed a late leveller through Nicolas Cordova as both sides served up a great spectacle.

The story is too old to be commented.
