Benzema recorded two assists and a goal of his own during France's win over Switzerland on Friday.

Benzema is proving himself to be one of the premier goal scorers in this 2014 World Cup as he's now scored three in just two games. On top of that, Friday's two assists bring his total up to three in that category as well. The veteran stands a good chance to bring more of the same to the pitch against Ecuador on Wednesday.
