Olivier Giroud scored again as his 94th minute header denied Spain victory in their World Cup qualifier with France in Madrid.

Sergio Ramos opened the scoring with a tap in two seconds after he nodded against the post in a dominant first half for La Roja at the Vicente Calderón Stadium.

Jérémy Ménez then had a header wrongly disallowed before Laurent Koscielny hacked down Pedro for a blatant penalty, only for Cesc Fàbregas to be denied by Tottenham's excellent Hugo Lloris.

It was a happier night for a current Arsenal man though, as Giroud upped his confidence following his first goal for the Gunners two weeks ago with a precise header past Iker Casillas.
