France pick up where they left off and are finally rewarded when Thierry Henry smashes in Zidane’s floated free-kick
Thierry Henry’s superb volley sent holders Brazil out of the World Cup as France moved into the semi-finals.
Inspired by man-of-the-match Zinedine Zidane, France were the better side in the first half, but failed to create clear chances to trouble Dida.
That changed just before the hour when Zidane swept a free-kick to the far post where it was sumptuously volleyed past the Brazilian goalkeeper by Henry.
