A nervy evening for France ended in delight after Samir Nasri's late penalty earned his team a 1-1 draw against Bosnia & Herzegovina, and a place in the Euro 2012 Finals. 

The visitors led deservedly from the 40 minute after Manchester City star Edin Dzeko scored a screamer from outside the box, shooting to curl in at the far post.

After the break, they did well to stave-off the urgent French onslaught. However, Laurent Blanc's men grabbed the crucial equalizer after Samir Nasri was judged to have been fouled inside the box, although replays suggested the foul took place outside the area and it was the players momentum which carried him to fall inside the box.

However, Nasri coverted the penalty in the 78 minute giving France the point they needed to qualify for the Finals.
