France beats Spain, wins Nations League

Paris: Kylian Mbappe scored late as world champion France came from behind in the final here on Sunday to clinch the Nations League title with a 2-1 victory over Spain.
Mbappe netted with 10 minutes remaining on the clock as France was once again forced to fight back, just as it had done in the semi-finals against Belgium. There were few chances in the summit clash, but the match burst into life shortly after the hour mark.
Moments after France hit the woodwork, Mikel Oyarzabal fired Spain in front but its lead lasted less than two minutes since Karim Benzema came up with a magnificent finish. In the third-place play-off in Turin earlier in the day, host Italy defeated Belgium 2-1.
