Antoine Griezmann scores an acrobatic goal with a scissor kick to give France the lead
The goal came in the 29th minute of the match from an inspirational bit of play from the Barcelona forward. Kylian Mbappe tried a few tricks of his own inside the Bulgarian penalty box, and delivered a low cross.
The low cross deflected off a defender and looped up in the air nicely for Griezmann was waiting just inside the box. He went for the extraordinary- overhead kick and displayed incredible technique in his shot.
His acrobatic scissor kick took a deflection off Chochev’s head and nestled into the back off the net to give them the lead.
Karim Benzema picked up a knock and had to be subbed off
However, despite being in the lead France will have concerns of their own as returning forward, Karim Benzema was subbed off in the 38th minute of the match days before their first EURO 2020 match. The striker picked up a knock during the match and seemed too have hurt his knee and later on signaled to the bench to be substituted.
The injury did not look to bad at first viewing but concerns would remain until something is confirmed from the French camp.
