Giroud gets France out a hole with a 94th minute equaliser in Spain

Spain 1 – France 1 (World Cup Qualifier, October 16, 2012) (Alternative highlights.) Just after the half hour, Sergio Ramos scored after Lloris had blocked a cross. France thought they had equalised but Jeremy Menez’s goal was ruled out. Before the break Spain spurned an opportunity for 2-0 as a Cesc Fabregas penalty was saved by Hugo Lloris. And there was still time for the Spurs goalkeeper to make a double save to keep the score at 1-0 at half-time. The match had a dramatic finish as, in the 94th minute, Franck Ribery crossed for sub Olivier Giroud to head home an equaliser.
