Watch: Benzema scores twice in minutes after Switzerland misses PK

Karim Benzema scored twice in quick succession – mere minutes after Hugo Lloris stopped Ricardo Rodriguez’s penalty attempt – to put France back in control of Monday’s manic round-of-16 clash against Switzerland.

Moments after Lloris dove to his right to prevent Switzerland from doubling its lead, Benzema corralled Kylian Mbappe’s pass with a ridiculous backheel touch to level the score at 1-1.

Less than two minutes later, Antoine Griezmann’s perfectly weighted cross found Benzema for the go-ahead goal.
