2022: Cabaye hits the post! After a stunning spell of possession, the ball breaks loose to the Newcastle midfielder at the edge of the area and his fierce strike hits the outside of the goal frame. Ukraine’s goalkeeper didn’t even move.


2017: The French are threatening to run away with this game. Benzema, searching for his first goal of the tournament, gets a shot away from outside the penalty area for France, but it is straight at Myatov. Les Bleus are on the verge of making it 23 games unbeaten.


2012: That’s two goals in a four-minute span and France is going top of the group. Cabaye scores his first international goal when he runs on to Karim Benzema’s diagonal through-ball and shoots left-footed into the far corner. Ukraine’s players look stunned.


2008: Finally, Menez gets his goal! The Paris Saint-Germain winger cuts inside from the right and shoots left-footed inside the near post. The Donbass Arena is silenced. Hold on, another goal for France

GOAL! Ukraine 0, France 2 (Cabaye)


2005: GOAL! Ukraine 0, France 1 (Menez)
