VIDEO: French stars score from behind the nets

Confidence running high in French camp as footballers compete for trickiest goal.

With a quarter-final against their German neighbours coming up tomorrow, French fans will be pleased to see their team are relaxed and really enjoying their football.

Their training session on Tuesday was filmed and showed Pogba, Cabaye and Giroud trying to score from behind the goals.

The three footballers were positioned behind and to the left of the posts and took turns dropping in shots to land just in front of the goals with enough spin to reverse direction and go over the line.

Their success rate was impressive - we don’t think any of us would be able to do this at home!
