Albania hit the post shortly after half-time when Ledian Memushaj bundled a cross past France keeper Hugo Lloris.

France striker Olivier Giroud also hit the post, before substitute Griezmann ended Albania’s resistance by nodding in Adil Rami’s right-wing cross.

Payet stroked in with the final kick as France clinched a flattering win.
