France Vs. England, Euro 2012: Nasri Makes It 1-1

And now France do have their goal. Just after spurning by far their best chance of the match, the favourites are level through Samir Nasri. It comes out of basically nothing, with Florent Malouda, Patrice Evra and Franck Ribery messing about with the ball at the edge of Joe Hart's penalty area, but suddenly Ribery lays it off to Nasri and the Manchester City midfielder blasts goalwards, beating Hart at his near post.

Hart might have done better there, but he was at least partially unsighted by Steven Gerrard, who had charged out in a futile attempt to block the shot. It wasn't great defending there - one of the midfield duo really ought to have closed Nasri down, but he was given plenty of time and space to get the shot away. That's England's good work undone then, and we're back to square one at Donetsk. 1-1.
