Alba: France Were Too Strong In The Second-Half

Real Madrid star Sergio Ramos put La Roja ahead early on in the tie, before Olivier Giroud levelled in the fourth minute of added-on time in the second period.

"The team is hungry and we tried to win against France," Alba told reporters.

"But nothing has been decided, [and] there are more rivals we can make things difficult for.

"We controlled the first-half, we missed and penalty and that was all very expensive.

"During the second period France were very strong, although I do not know whether it was down to fatigue," the 23-year-old added.

The European rivals now share top spot in Group I, with Spain ahead on goal difference.
