Internationals: Evra action

Patrice Evra played the full 90 minutes for France in their remarkable comeback against Iceland.

The full-back, wearing strapping on his wrist, is tipped to face competition for his place from Manchester City's Gael Clichy with the Euro 2012 opener against England on the horizon.

Laurent Blanc's side will be in a positive frame of mind after recovering from the shock of going two goals down to triumph 3-2.

England's Under-19s salvaged a point from a 1-1 draw with impressive Montenegro at Rochdale's Spotland. Sam Johnstone, Michael Keane and Tom Thorpe took part in the entire game, although the latter moved from centre-half into a midfield position. Will Keane came off the bench at half-time and forced one good save out of Daniel Petkovic but Arsenal's Benik Afobe snatched the late equaliser.

Noel Blake's young Lions are in action again on Wednesday night at Preston's Deepdale (kick off: 7.30pm BST) against Switzerland with qualification from the Elite Qualifying Round still up for grabs.

Elsewhere, Mexico defeated Wales 2-0 but Javier Hernandez was not involved.
