France reached the quarterfinals of the Euro 2012 as runners-up in their group following their 2-0 defeat against Sweden. Ibrahomovic and Larsson scored for the Swedes and the French weren't able to score despite dominating the match. France will face Spain on Saturday at 20:45 CET, while Sweden left the championship making a good impression. Benzema was a starter and one of the most dangerous men in the French attack. He was the most active footballer near the box and played the entire match.
