Payet's superb late free kick helps France beat Cameroon 3-2

NANTES, France (AP) Dimitri Payet scored a brilliant last-minute free kick as European Championship host France beat Cameroon 3-2 in a friendly Monday.

Playing at the same stadium in Nantes where he began his career 11 years ago, the attacking midfielder angled a shot from wide on the right into the opposite corner, cancelling out striker Eric Choupo Moting's 88th-minute equalizer for Cameroon.

Payet shined for West Ham in the Premier League this season, scoring several free kicks hit with astonishing bend, dip and velocity - despite little or no run up.
