Pino controls a goalkick beautifully on his thigh, spinning away and eventually sliding a pass into space for Koke, close to the right by-line. He crosses, and Tchouameni blocks at source, ceding a corner. It goes short and France force Spain back.
I was beginning to agree with Bob Cushion (re boring first half) and started watching an episode of Homeland while secretly watching the match on my computer. In the space of a few seconds, I’ve seen a crossbar hit, a wonderful Spanish goal and a simply astonishing effort from Benzema. I’m afraid I’ll have to put Homeland on hold.”
On which point, can I recommend Hatufim, the Israeli series on which Homeland was based? It’s well worth a look-in.
Rodri pushes forward and with no one closing him down he lets a shot go, a deflection sending the ball soaring over the bar for a corner.
Suddenly Mbappe is finding space, and when Griezmann sweeps out to him, he looks to henry a finish into the far corner but doesn’t gets a decent connection, allowing Simon to save.
HAVE A LOOK! Benzema, who’s been quiet, takes the ball on the left corner of the box, shifts it inside Azpilicueta … and only bends a gorgeous finish into the far top corner! France have come from behind yet again!
