France defeated Wales 3-0 in a friendly match between the two teams at the Allianz Riviera stadium in Nice, in preparation for Euro 2020.

Iran PressEurope: Kylian Mbappe, Antoine Griezmann and Ousmane Dembele grabbed the goals. Dembele's 79th-minute effort came after Benzema superbly controlled a cross on his chest and swiveled sharply only for his shot to strike the post and fall for Dembele. Karim Benzema had a sharp header saved moments later.

Wales played more than one hour with 10 players after defender Neco Williams was sent off for a goal-saving handball to set up the penalty that Benzema missed in the 27th. 

“I felt a lot of pride, I wanted to play and to show it. That’s what I did tonight," Benzema said. “I had very good feelings out there. It’s been a difficult season with a lot of matches but I felt good all game.”

France play Bulgaria next Tuesday before starting their Euro 2020 campaign against Germany in Group F, where they will also face Hungary and defending champions Portugal.

Wales were drawn in Group A with Switzerland, Turkey, and Italy.
