Benzema ends his goal drought and leads France to crush Australia by 6-0!

Australia were given another chastening lesson in football as France romped to a 6-0 victory at the Parc des Princes in an international friendly on Friday.

Just a month after being hit for six by Brazil, Australia were given the runaround again as France proved their recent troubles in front of goal were a thing of the past.Les Bleus were 4-0 up inside half an hour in the Parc des Princes friendly after a Ribry penalty, two Olivier Giroud goals and a Yohan Cabaye effort. They could not keep that intensity, but second-half strikes from Mathieu Debuchy and substitute Benzema sealed a victory that leaves them in high spirits ahead of their final FIFA World Cup qualifier against Finland on Tuesday.

Didier Deschamps's side need to win in Paris and hope Group I leaders Spain slip up against Georgia; they will be confident of at least the first part of that equation after a dominant display. Ribry sparked the triumph from the spot on eight minutes and played a role in all six goals. It was a minor contribution eight minutes later as Giroud fired a superb curling shot over goalkeeper Mitchell Langerak.

Ribry and Samir Nasri combined to tee up Giroud soon after, Cabaye being the beneficiary of the similar double act on 29 minutes. Debuchy added another after the restart and Benzema completed the scoring from close range in the 50th minute.
