Benzema equalizes for France vs Portugal

France have drawn level with Portugal in their last Euro 2020 match from the penalty spot.

The two European heavyweights went into tonight’s fight with the opportunity to top Group F that was offered.

After Portugal took the lead through a Cristiano Ronaldo penalty game, it looked like they would take the top spot, with France against England at Wembley.

The match official decided to award one of the softest penalties you will ever see, given in a major tournament, giving Karim Benzema a golden chance to equalize.

Benzema, who had yet to find the net side earlier after being brought back into the fold by Didier Deschamps, made no mistake from 12-yards.

As Germany are currently losing to Hungary, Gareth Southgate is still completely in the dark as to who he will take on in knockout stages on Tuesday night.
