EURO 2012 : France beat Ukraine 2-0 after storm interupts match

France secured their first group win at Euro 2012 with a 2-0 victory over co-hosts Ukraine during a rain-interrupted spectacle in Donetsk.

The teams were forced off the pitch with just four minutes played with torrential rain and thunder and lighting, and resumed that match about an hour after the scheduled start time.

French winger Jeremy Menez opened the scoring in the 53rd minute when drifted inside his marker and fired in from 12 yards and Yohan Cabaye added a second with a low strike from the edge of the area just 3 minutes later.

Ukraine 0
France 2
(Menez 53, Cabaye 56)
