England hold on for France draw

England clung on for a share of the spoils as they recorded a 1-1 draw in their opening Euro 2012 clash with France after taking the lead through Joleon Lescott's first goal for his country.

Lescott headed home a Steven Gerrard free-kick after half an hour only for Samir Nasri to level matters before half-time.

France were the better side in the second 45 minutes, with Yohan Cabaye impressive, but they could not make the breakthrough.
