WARSAW, POLAND (AP) - France draws 1-1 with England in a match between the two heavyweights of Group D at the European Championship. Sweden plays co-host Ukraine next.

Here is a running account of Monday’s action. All times are local to Poland.

___

1955: So, France’s unbeaten record is extended to 22 games but Blanc will feel his team could have snatched a win in Donetsk after having 60 percent possession. England will be the happier with the point after defending for large periods and scoring with its only attempt on target. It keeps them unbeaten under Roy Hodgson.

1948: FULL TIME: FRANCE 1, ENGLAND 1

1946: Milner delivers a low ball into the near post for Danny Welbeck but Phillipe Mexes gets their first and pokes it out for a corner, which France clear. That is as close as England have come to scoring this half. We’re into stoppage time.

___

1943: France makes some substitutions, too. Hatem Ben Arfa on for Yohan Cabaye and Marvin Martin replaces Florent Malouda. Five minutes left and the French doing all the attacking.

___

1938: Welbeck deflects Cabaye’s volley just wide of Hart’s post. That was as close as we’ve come for a while. 10 minutes left.

___

1933: (at)mattekaren England’s wingers largely uneffective so far. Walcott much be chomping at the bit on the bench. (via Twitter)

It’s not Walcott coming on, though. It’s Jordan Henderson and Jermain Defoe for Parker and Oxlade-Chamberlain.
