England have battled their way to a Euro 2012 1-1 draw with France in Donetsk.
Joleon Lescott put them in front after half an hour, but they were only able to hold the lead for nine minutes as Samir Nasri struck from the edge of the area.
England never really looked like restoring their advantage, instead relying on the obdurate defensive traits that have so far characterised Roy Hodgson's previous two friendlies in charge.
As France are expected to advance from Group D, the new manager should be fairly pleased with the outcome on a sweltering night.
England captain Steven Gerrard was satisfied with the result, saying: "We would have been delighted with a win but as you saw tonight France have got fantastic players.
"We caused them as many problems as they caused us so we're satisfied with the performance.
"It's great to get off the mark points-wise."
