West Ham defender Zouma hails Benzema for France victory

West Ham defender Kurt Zouma was delighted being part of France's World Cup qualifying win against Finland.

Zouma was eager to pay tribute to Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema, who struck in the 2-0 triumph.

He later said: "He came home, he scored. Before that, it was a tough game. He also created a lot of spaces for others.

"We know he's an important player for the team and when he's there, the defenders are a little more scared.

"It did us good, it freed us (the goal) so all the better."
