France continued its preparations to host Euro 2016 with a friendly against Cameroon on Monday, and Paul Pogba, Olivier Giroud and Dimitri Payet appear ready for the competition to get going. 

Pogba delivered a perfect assist to Giroud, with the Arsenal forward breaking a 1-1 tie with the Indomitable Lions late in the first half, and Payet won the match with a late free kick to secure the 3-2 result.

France's Blaise Matuidi opened the scoring only to have his tally matched by Vincent Aboubakar. 

France, which opens Euro 2016 against Romania on June 10, re-took the lead through Giroud, who volleyed home Pogba's precisely curled cross from the right in the 41st minute:

Cameroon hung tough and equalized through Eric Chopou-Moting in the the 88th minute only for Payet, West Ham's free kick specialist, to come through in the 90th with a stunning set piece:
