Cabaye Scores In Rout

9 October 2015

Yohan Cabaye transferred his impressive recent club form to the international stage last night, clinically finishing from the edge of the area for France's second goal in their 4-0 hammering of Armenia.

The Eagles midfielder hit a clean strike into the bottom corner to double France's lead on 55 minutes, with Antoine Griezmann having got Les Bleus off the mark with a powerful effort in the first half.

Cabaye, playing as a number ten, impressed during the victory, causing the Armenian defence problems with his creativity going forward. His strike gave them a 2-0 lead before Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema added a late, quickfire brace to double their advantage before the whistle.

Elsewhere, Yannick Bolasie provided an assist in the Democratic Republic of Congo's 2-0 friendly win over Nigeria on Thursday evening, whilst James McArthur appeared off the bench in Scotland's 2-2 draw with Poland.

The Scots' failure to win, with the Republic of Ireland beating world champions Germany 1-0, means that Gordon Strachan's men can no longer qualify for Euro 2016. They were leading the Poles 2-1, but Bayern Munich superstar Robert Lewandowski then scored his second of the evening in the dying minutes to level the match and ruin Scotland's qualification hopes.
