France overhaul Ukraine with own goal clinching Brazil spot
Yorkshire Evening Post - over 3 years
France produced a stunning comeback in their World Cup play-off against Ukraine, winning 3-0 in Paris to progress to the finals 3-2 on aggregate. Mamadou Sakho opened the scoring and two erroneous offside decisions balanced each other out as Karim Benzema scored shortly after seeing another effort disallowed. After Ukraine had Yevhen Khacheridi sent off, an unfortunate own goal by their substitute Oleg Gusev completed a remarkable turnaround for Les Bleus, who were unrecognisable from their lacklustre showing in Kiev last Friday. France started on the front foot, and they got a deserved opener in the 22nd minute. Franck Ribery’s fierce low drive was blocked, and Sakho followed up to lash home. There was controversy as Benzema was initially denied a goal, the offside flag wrongly raised when he turned a low cross in with his torso from a yard out. But he got his goal in the 34th minute when he side-footed home after an almighty scramble – though on this occasion he was shown to be o ...
