Benzema: “What a goal’ I would have preferred to win

Following their victory in the inaugural Nations League a year ago, France opened their defense against Denmark on Friday night at the Stade de France, and everything appeared to be on track for further success as Benzema completed the home side’s domination with an absolute beauty of a goal.

Stunning

Working a one-two with substitute Christopher Nkunku on the right side of the box, the man whose clutch goals helped Real Madrid to a fairy-tale 14th Champions League title took a series of sublime touches to create an opportunity before slotting comfortably home for his 50th goal for club and country.
“What is my objective? True, it was a good goal, but I would have wanted to win “Many predict he will win the Ballon d’Or for the first time this year, and he has already scored in five consecutive France matches. “It’s always going to be better.”

Turnaround

But it wasn’t to be, as Cornelius – who had a brief spell with Bordeaux in 2018-19 – came on for OGC Nice attacker Kasper Dolberg and single-handedly gave France their first defeat in 20 games.

After being sent in behind France’s defense, he cancelled off Benzema’s magnificent shot with a clever side-footed volley, and then with a jubilant strong near-post stab as he fended off the attentions of OM’s William Saliba.
