The France team drew against Portugal on Wednesday at Euro 2021 (2-2). Karim Benzema took the opportunity to score his first goals since his comeback. A double with a very original feature.
Delivery. Finally! Karim Benzema has found the net under the jersey of the France team. The Real Madrid striker scored twice against Portugal on Wednesday at the Euro (2-2). What to answer to Cristiano Ronaldo, his former colleague Merengue. A way above all to dispel the beginnings of discomfort and fully regain a smile.
The 33-year-old center-forward first converted a penalty kick obtained by Kylian Mbappé at the very end of the first period. Before deceiving Rui Patricio on a sublime service from Paul Pogba, upon returning from the locker room. The most attentive will have noted a rather funny fact. And particularly original. Benzema, elected man of the match, scored his two goals in exactly the same minute …
A particularly rare similarity
KB9 converted his penalty after 45 minutes and 1’44 of added time, ahead of the French kop from Budapest. And after the break, he crossed his strike in the 46th minute and 44 seconds against the Portuguese fans. An anecdotal similarity but rare enough to be noted. Thanks to this result against the Selecçao, the Blues finished at the top of Group F and will face Switzerland on Monday in Bucharest (9 p.m.). The Portuguese will challenge Belgium on Sunday in Seville (9 p.m.).
