Goals by David Silva and Gerard Deulofeu inspired Spain to a 2-0 victory over France in an international friendly match at the Stade de France on Tuesday.

The home side thought they opened the scoring in the 47th minute, but Antoine Griezmann had his goal ruled out by a video assistant referee for being offside.

David Silva eventually broke the deadlock for Spain when he converted from the penalty spot after Laurent Koscielny fouled Deulofeu in the area.

The visiting side then added their second when Deulofeu latched on to a Jordi Alba cross before finding the back of the net, but an assistant referee ruled it as offside before the video official awarded the goal.
