Match 10 of the 2014 World Cup saw France meet Honduras in Porto Alegre.

Les Blues dominated the opening period and led 1-0 at half-time.

Wilson Palacios barged into the back of Paul Pogba, conceding a penalty and seeing a red card.


Karim Benzema calmly dispatched the spot kick on the brink of the interval.


Earlier Blaise Matuidi saw his header tipped onto the crossbar.


Later in the period, Antoine Griezmann hit the woodwork with a header before the Real Madrid striker broke the deadlock.


Benzema played a big part in the second goal, shortly after half-time, as his strike came off the woodwork before Noel Valladares pushed it over the line—a goal confirmed by the goal-line technology system.


The big centre-forward did add his second when he smashed a shot into the roof of the net inside the final 20 minutes.


The game finished 3-0 and France now meet Switzerland on Friday after their 2-1 win over Ecuador earlier in the day.
