Moussa Sissoko started the game for France against Brazil last night at the Stade de France in Paris, and the powerful midfielder played 74 minutes for his country, before he was replaced by Kondogbiawho, but France lost the game 3-1.

Varane put France ahead after 21 minutes and Moussa could have put France 2-0 up but goalkeeper Jefferson made a good save.
But then unanswered goals from Oscar (40 mins), Neymar (57 mins) and Luiz Gustavo (69 mins) gave Brazil their seventh successive win since their disastrous world cup last summer.
Dunga is back in charge of the side for his second spell as the Brazil head coach.
His job is to (quickly) restore some pride to the South American side who were hammered 7-1 by Germany in the semi-finals of the World Cup last year – their biggest ever defeat in the World Cup, which they have won five times.
And the France goal was only the second they have conceded in their seven wins since the German humiliation last summer.
There was a one minute silence before the game for those lost in the Germanwings plane disaster earlier this week, which now looks like the plane was deliberately crashed in the French Alps by the co-pilot.
And it was France’s first defeat in seven games since their World Cup quarter-final loss to Germany.
As far as we can find out Moussa was not injured last night.
