France won a logical 3-0 win over Wales in an international friendly in preparation for the Euro 2020 European Nations Cup, which kicks off on 11 June.
Kylian Mbappé, Antoine Griezmann and Ousmane Dembele scored three goals from the roosters, while star striker Karim Benzema missed a penalty kick in the first half with a zero / zero score.
And it seems like the penalties have become a weakness and a problem for the French team, as this is the third penalty that the French player has missed this season, as Benzema was preceded by two other stars, Mbappé and Griezmann. …
Radio and television Monte Carlo Sport reported that this is the third time Benzema has missed a penalty with roosters, as he did for the first time against Switzerland at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, but the result ended in France’s favor 5./2, and a few months later he lost again to Sweden in a match that ended with a 1-0 victory to France, while Benzema managed to score from the penalty spot only twice, the first time against Turkey in June 2009, and the match ended in favor of France 1-0, and the second time against Honduras at the World Cup Brazil “3/0”.
Surprisingly, Benzema never lost the penalties he paid with the clubs he played for Lyon and Real Madrid, where he scored 16 goals out of 16 penalties. The French network added that this failure to score a penalty isn’t just about Benzema, as the Cocks have been proven to concede 5 of their last 8 penalties, and three of them have been conceded this season as Kylian Mbappe missed a penalty last. March during a Kazakh match. 2 / nil ”, Griezmann also missed a penalty kick against Sweden at 1 / nil, with the latter failing twice in a row before, for the first time in the European qualifier for the euro in September 2019. against Albania “4/1” and the second against Moldova “3 / zero”.
The network added that the only “rooster” who screamed strongly and scored all the penalties that he saved 100% was Olivier Giroud, who scored 4 goals out of 4 penalties in his entire career in the French national team.
