france-1-turkey-0 France came back from their miserable performance against Nigeria earlier this week to beat 10-man Turkey in Lyon tonight.
Having been booed off after a 1-0 loss in St Etienne three days ago, France were eager to put those memories to bed and did so courtesy of Karim Benzema’s first-half penalty at the Stade de Gerland.Malouda could have got a very early goal within under 90 seconds, but his right-footed shot from close range went wide of the target.
Benzema was similarly wayward before Turkey began to come into the game, starting with a long-range effort by Halil Altintop that that was held by Hugo Lloris in the France goal.
Tuncay had a header just goal wide.Nicolas Anelka missed a great chance from close range and Turkey hit back down the other end where Arda Turan sent a shot wide from the edge of the area ina very open game
But the game then turned when Uzulmez hauled down Anelka inside the area to earn himself a red card and France a penalty.
Benzema, playing on what may not be his home ground for much longer, dispatched the penalty no problem to give france the win. Govou could have made it 2-0 but his late shot come of the post see highlights below
