Battle: Adil Rami challenges Spain's Cesc Fabregas
French fingers pointed at Chelsea’s Florent Malouda, who allowed Alonso to run into the penalty area unimpeded, while Liverpool fans must have cursed the day Rafa Benitez sold their Spanish hero to Madrid in 2009.
Spain’s tiki-taka passing never hit the absolute heights but it did not matter as France rarely got the ball to danger men Franck Ribery and Karim Benzema.
