“Les Bleus” supporters who came in great number at the Stade Vélodrome in Marseille did eye-witness an encouraging performance. Those who wagered on France on bets on football platforms were also thrilled. Despite an uncoordinated playing style, Didier Deschamps’men managed to 1-0 win over Sweden. The unique goal in this game is scored by Raphael Varane. Following a corner kicked by Griezmann, the Real Madrid defender smashed it with a beautiful header into Andreas Isaksson’s net.
Admittedly, the Sweden team played it great defensively, giving a hard time to Varane and teammates. The latter were stuck with the 1-0 lead until the final whistle. For Karim Benzema, another iconic football stars on online betting sites, could have scored another goal, but he missed a penalty in the 86th minute. France spent most of the 90 minutes of play working on its defence. The few dangers that shook France’s goalkeeper Steve Mandanda were that of Jansson (34th) and Krafth’s (38th).
