Follow along for live updates and highlights of goals and key plays as the U.S. men’s national team faces France in a friendly.

The U.S. men’s national team’s two-week camp culminates in the toughest of its three friendlies, as the Americans take on World Cup contender France in Lyon on Saturday.

After beating Bolivia and falling to Ireland, the youthful U.S. turns its focus to Les Bleus, who boast the world-class likes of Paul Pogba, Antoine Griezmann and Kylian Mbappe.

The camp has been used largely for a number of U.S. rising talents to earn their first caps and goals. Josh Sargent, Tim Weah and Walker Zimmerman opened their international accounts against Bolivia, while the more experienced Bobby Wood scored in the loss in Dublin. For Weah, the opponent will feature some familiar faces, with the 18-year-old PSG winger teammates with Mbappe, Presnel Kimpembe and Alphonse Areola on the club level.
