Euro 2016 hosts France turned on the style to beat Scotland 3-0 in their final friendly before they kick off the tournament next Friday.

Olivier Giroud opened the scoring on Saturday night with a near-post flick after eight minutes and was celebrating for a second time when he followed in Dimitri Payet’s shot to turn home (35).

Laurent Koscielny put France in complete control with their third before half-time (39), heading past Scotland goalkeeper David Marshall from close range.
