WATCH: Benzema scores stunning curler vs Spain

WATCH: Benzema inspires France to comeback win vs Spain in Nations League final

October 10, 2021 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
The French striker scored one of the goals of the tournament in Sunday night's final as his country secured their first title in the tournament.

France striker Karim Benzema continued his red hot form by getting on the scoresheet as France secured their first-ever UEFA Nations League title at the expense of Spain on Sunday night. The Real Madrid skipper hit an audacious curler to pull his Les Bleus back into the game barely 60 seconds after conceding the game's opening goal before Kylian Mbappe subsequently scored the decider.

Following a comparatively slow start in the first half, the clash between the two European heavyweight had life breathed after the half-time break. It was Spain who drew first blood through Mikel Oyarzarbal. The Real Sociedad skipper finished off a brilliant counter-attacking move just a brief moment after Theo Hernandes had hit the woodwork on the opposite end for France. 

A few seconds after France had restarted the game, another breakaway opportunity presented itself for the reigning world champions to fully capitalise on. This time, Karim Benzema decided to go alone and ended up burying a sensational curling effort into the top-right corner of the Spain goal.

Watch:

Both sides had all to play for from that period onward with the chances being aplenty and falling the way of either of them. Nevertheless it was France who added to their new reputation as comeback kings to snatch the winner later on. Kylian Mbappe, who had misfired for the most part of the night's outing finally got his moment of vindication, beating a very tight offside trap to score the goal that made Les Bleus only the second country to win the UEFA Nations League after
