As the start of the game approached, the players lined up on either side of the halfway line.
And then a little white car with a large aerial whizzed onto the grass.
A football was perched within a dip in its roof that Spanish ref Alberto Undiano was easily able to pluck from its grasp.
The radio controlled car returned to base and France went on to win the game 2-0.
