France 3-0 Bulgaria: Olivier Giroud seals win with two late goals after Antoine Griezmann’s deflected bicycle kick put Les Bleus ahead… but they are left sweating over Karim Benzema’s knee injury in their final friendly ahead of Euro 2020
France signed off their build-up to Euro 2020 with a routine 3-0 friendly victory over Bulgaria on Tuesday in Paris.
Antoine Griezmann had put France, Euro 2020 favourites, ahead with a deflected acrobatic bicycle kick in the 29th minute before Olivier Giroud sealed the win with a trademark first-time finish at the front post prior to netting again in the dying minutes.
However, their victory was somewhat marred by an apparent knee injury to Karim Benzema, who was forced off near the end of the opening period after landing awkwardly following a header at the Stade de France.
