France waste chance to get a third, in hilarious fashion

Switzerland presented France with a golden opportunity to get a third goal when Johan Djourou tripped Karim Benzema while he was running into the box. It was Benzema that stepped up to take the resultant penalty, but Diego Benaglio managed to push the shot away.

But Swiss hearts were still pounding in their chests as Mathieu Valbuena seized the chance to put away the rebound. Instead, he was only able to slam his shot into the crossbar.

With France up 2-0, Switzerland still have a bit of a mountain to climb. But it could've been much worse. Instead, it's just funny.
