Match summary
France had David Trezeguet to thank for earning a point against Croatia.
The reigning champions looked to be heading for a comfortable win when Igor Tudor deflected a Zinedine Zidane free-kick into his own net.
But after a lacklustre first half, Croatia went into the lead through a Milan Rapaic penalty and a fine strike from forward Dado Prso.
But Trezeguet put France back on level terms when he took advantage of a defensive mix up to slot home.
The draw takes France clear at the top of Group B and only needing a point in their final game against Switzerland to qualify for the knockout stages.
