FIFA World Cup 2014: France vs Honduras 10th Match in Pictures

Karim Benzema scored twice and created a third that was confirmed by goal-line technology as France beat Honduras 3-0 Sunday in its first World Cup match.

The dominant win was a relief for France, whose team of highly paid players failed to win in South Africa and was sent home in a disgrace after going on a training strike.

“Winning 3-0 at a World Cup isn't easy,” France coach Didier Deschamps said.

France's forward Karim Benzema celebrates the second goal of his team during a Group E football match between France and Honduras at the Beira-Rio Stadium in Porto Alegre during the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
