Didier Deschamps said his France team were taught a lesson in aggressiveness by Colombia, after losing their friendly 3-2 at home.

Les Bleus went 2-0 up in 28 minutes, with goals from Olivier Giroud and Thomas Lemar.

However, goals from Luis Muriel, Radamel Falcao and Juan Quintero was enough to secure a comeback. Deschamps slammed his men for getting complacent.

“We had a lot of trouble. They put in more aggression, and we did not do so at all,” he told TMC .

“We had losses of the ball that put them back on track. This Colombian team has given us a lesson in aggression. They don’t let go.

“We showed a level of cockiness at times. It doesn’t please me, especially what I saw in the second half. We’ll take some time to analyse it.

“We haven’t met the demands of the highest level. We have no excuses. It’s a game we’ve lost at home, which is never fun.”
