Donetsk (Ukraine), Jun 12: England held on for a 1-1 draw with France today at the European Championship, giving the Group D favorites one point each.




Joleon Lescott put England in the lead with a header in the 30th minute, and Samir Nasri leveled shortly before halftime with a strike into the bottom corner.  

Midfielder Yohan Cabaye and striker Karim Benzema almost won the match for France with late efforts, but the draw means France has still not won a match at a major tournament since the 2006 World Cup.

France midfielder Alou Diarra and England midfielder James Milner both came close to scoring in the first half.
