Karim Benzema missed out on adding another outstanding goal to his burgeoning World Cup collection—because it came just moments after the final whistle had blown. 

The France striker curled a beautiful shot into the corner of the goal—only to get the bad news that the match was over.

It mattered little, as France settled for a 5-2 victory over Switzerland rather than a 6-2 triumph.
