France have beat Swizerland to take the lead in Group E. The scoring began in the 17th minute, when striker Olivier Giroud gave France a 1-nil lead with a powerful header.

But the scoring spree continued in the second half, as Karim Benzema poked the ball through the legs of Swiss keeper Diego Benagli in the 67th minute for France's fourth.
