France vs England 1-0

Posted on March 27, 2008. Filed under: International | Tags: , , , , |

England was handed defeat in Paris last night by their neighbours across the channel. The only goal scored was from the penalty spot after England keeper James took down Anelka. Ribery stepped up to convert and sent James the wrong way.

England never really seemed to trouble France as they delivered some very solid defending and also caused no end of trouble up the other end through their speedy flanks and the dangerous Anelka. The match also marked Beckham’s 100th cap although it wasn’t a particularly memorable performance by him. France look to be well prepared for the upcoming Euro competition.
