‘It shows what great teams do’ – Benzema after beating Spain in Nations League Final

'It shows what great teams do' - Benzema after beating Spain in Nations League Final

karim Benzema said France showed their greatness by keeping their cool to recover from a goal down to beat Spain 2-1 and win the Nations League Final.

The world champions fought back from 2-0 down to beat Belgium 3-2 in the semi-final and they were forced to do the hard work again as Spain dominated the first half of Sunday night’s match at the San Siro.

“We showed our character against a very strong team. We never gave up,” said Benzema.

“It shows what great teams do – never panic, be patient and wait for the right time.”

Spain protested that Mbappe was offside when he received the ball but the VAR check found a slight touch from defender Eric Garcia had played the France striker onside.

France had goalkeeper Hugo Lloris to thank for two late saves as Deschamps’s side held on for the victory against intense Spanish pressure.
