Benzema passed his Man Utd audition for Ferguson

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson was impressed by Lyon goal scorer Karim Benzema after last night's 1-1 draw.

"We lost a goal out of nothing, really, but it showed the qualities of the boy Benzema," Ferguson says on the official Manchester United website. "It was a marvellous strike but I thought we were in complete control at the time."
