Reigning king of the free kick Dimitri Payet showed off his craft again today in a friendly against Cameroon, delivering France the victory with this screamer.
France snatched victory against Cameroon with a last-gasp Dimitri Payet free-kick but it was Kingsley Coman who caught the eye in Nantes as the 19-year-old Bayern Munich winger set up a goal and made his presence felt all over the pitch until he came off in the 77th minute.
France looked sluggish at times but could at least rely on Coman in a 3-2 win on Monday in their penultimate warm-up game for the Euro 2016 campaign on home soil. They opened the scoring after 20 minutes when the midfielder Blaise Matuidi volleyed home a fine cross by Coman, starting a match for France for the first time.
Cameroon levelled two minutes later, Vincent Aboubacar catching the France defence off guard to tap in from close range.
The Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud put the home side back ahead from a Paul Pogba cross four minutes before the break and the second half proved relatively uneventful until Eric Choupo Moting put the visitors level again from close range two minutes from time.
It then took a brilliant free-kick from West Ham’s Payet in the dying moments to seal victory.
