France were running riot over Switzerland in their Group E clash, but it could have been even worse for the Swiss but for Yohan Cabaye's epic miss.

Karim Benzema had just seen his penalty saved, but the ball rebounded to Cabaye at close range.

The former Newcastle United midfielder looked to blast it home on the volley, but with no keeper to beat—you can see he's already given up on the goal—Cabaye managed to thunder the ball into the crossbar instead.
