Soccer-Di Maria stunner leaves Argentina level with France at halftime

KAZAN, Russia, June 30 (Reuters) - Angel Di Maria unleashed a stunning long-range strike in the 41st minute to draw Argentina level at 1-1 against France at halftime of their round of 16 World Cup clash on Saturday.

Di Maria’s brilliant goal cancelled out a 13th minute penalty converted by France striker Antoine Griezmann at the Kazan Arena.

The penalty was awarded after Marcos Rojo brought down Kylian Mbappe in the area after the France forward made a searing break from midfield.
