At 52′, France launch a swift and incisive counter through Ribery on the left. He finds Benzema who moves the ball on to Jeremy Menez on the right. Menez cuts inside Selin and hits a left footed shot low into Pyatov’s left hand corner. Lovely finish to a great counter attack. 1-0 for France.

At 55′, Karim Benzema drops deep to pick up a ball from Ribery. He spins his marker and spots the advancing Cabaye at the edge of the area. Benzema finds the Newcastle man with a crisp pass. Cabaye holds off the challenge and slots under Pyatov. 2-0.

Score did not change till Full Time. Laurent Blanc’s side move onto four points with an extremely comfortable win thanks to goals from Jeremy Menez and Yohan Cabaye. Ukraine were very poor while France rarely got anywhere near top gear. The game was at it’s most exciting when the players were hauled off the pitch after just four minutes as a spectacular electrical storm did it’s thing over Donetsk.
