Paris: Paul Pogba and Dimitri Payet scored as France fought back to beat Sweden 2-1 in a World Cup qualifier on Friday that was marked by tributes to the victims of last year's Paris terror attacks.

Emil Forsberg had put Sweden in front from a free-kick early in the second half at the Stade de France in a meeting of the top two teams in European qualifying for the 2018 World Cup. But Pogba headed in the equaliser in the 58th minute and Payet profited from a goalkeeping error to score the winner.
