In Grenoble, France defeated Ecuador 2-0 searching the best team for the EURO 2008.
The French victory arrived thanks to two amazing goals from Bafetimbi Gomis responding Raymond Domenech expectations. The first goal was a shot from outside of the penalty area, and the second one was made by a volley shot hit without letting bounce after a delicious pass from Nicolas Anelka. This match was the first one of Gomis representing the French squad.
Mistakes in the Ecuadorian defense and good technique in French feet was the key of this deserved victory. Watch France Team in the midfield line it is a really good taste. Samir Nasri, Gomis and Anelka excelled on the rest of the players.
I think that it was the squad that showed best football during this week of friendly matches. One step closer I picked Czech Republic performance.
For my part, I feel very happy because I was able to watch almost both matches.
