Benzema penalty SAVED by Ward as Mbappe gives Les Bleus lead against ten-man Dragons

FRANCE 0-0 WALES

27. Let’s start with the good…

…Danny Ward has just pulled a superb one-handed stop, diving low to his right, to save Karim Benzema’s penalty and keep the striker from scoring on his return to the international scene.

The bad? The decision that led to the spotkick being awarded after a long VAR review. Neco Williams was a yard away from Benzema when the Real Madrid struck the ball, and while the Welshman’s arms were up, it was impossible for him to get out of the way.

The red card for deliberate handball that followed? Absolutely ridiculous. They’re really put the FFS in friendly.
