|SALVADOR, Brazil -- France is striking at the World Cup again, this time in a way the fans back home will approve of. Lanny McDonald Jersey . Four years ago to the day, Frances players shamed the nation by going on strike at the last World Cup. On Friday, the team put on a striking attacking display, blowing Switzerland away with a 5-2 win on Friday to take total control of Group E and put themselves in position to avoid a showdown with Lionel Messis Argentina in the next round. "We were all magnificent tonight," said goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, one of only four holdovers from the shambles of Frances last World Cup. "We cant let ourselves get flooded by emotion and must stay calm. But were going to savour this." Karim Benzema, Olivier Giroud and winger Mathieu Valbuena alls scored one goal and created another to underline both the newfound team spirit in this team and the lethal versatility in attack. "When you score five goals, its ecstasy," Valbuena said. "It was a great night for us. We hurt them with our quick attacks and with the variety of our play," France coach Didier Deschamps said. Giroud and Blasie Matuidi scored a minute apart and Valbuena added another before halftime. Benzema made up for a first-half penalty miss with a poachers finish in the 67th, and then turned provider for Moussa Sissoko, who made it 5-0 in the 73rd. "Karim is confirming that hes in very, very good form," Deschamps said." Hes in great shape athletically." Switzerland pulled two consolation goals back as Blerim Dzemaili scored with a free kick in the 81st and Granit Xhaka slotted in the second in the 87th. Benzema thought he had scored his second -- and the goal of the night -- but his curling, first-time strike was ruled out because Dutch referee Bjorn Kuipers blew his whistle for full time just seconds before the shot. "I didnt hear the whistle," he said. Friday marked the fourth anniversary of Frances infamous World Cup training ground strike four years ago in South Africa, when the players shamed a nation back home. How different things look from 2010. "We have to carry on this way and to keep this strength, this irreproachable team spirit we have," Valbuena said. France has scored eight goals in two games in the tournament and Benzema could even afford to miss a penalty. "Its a huge satisfaction within the team but were not going to get carried away," Deschamps said. "We shouldnt think were prettier than we are." Switzerlands demise came rapidly, after centre half Steve Von Bergen came off with blood pouring down from under his left eye after Giroud kicked him in the face in the sixth minute. He was replaced by Philippe Senderos and things went from bad to awful from then on for a makeshift defence against the ferocious pace of Frances breaks from midfield and the slick movement of its interchanging forwards. "They can go very far in this tournament," Switzerland coach Ottmar Hitzfeld said through a translator. "We have seen Frances potential. They had an explosion of power." Deschamps had dropped midfielder Paul Pogba, who was lucky not to be sent off against Honduras for aiming a wild kick at Wilson Palacios, warning him that he needs to control his temper better. After coming on as a substitute, Pogba sent an exquisite pass with the outside of his right boot that had Senderos kicking at air, and Benzema finished confidently for his third goal of the tournament. The Real Madrid forward then instigated a move and waited for Sissoko to break down the right, serving him with an inch-perfect pass. The Swiss conceded far too easily. Giroud jumped above Behrami from near the back of the penalty area to head powerfully under the crossbar in the 17th minute. Then, Valon Behrami gave the ball away to Benzema, who fed Matuidi sprinting down the left, and the Paris Saint-Germain midfielder slotted neatly inside the near post. The Swiss had only one shot on target in the first half, with goalkeeper Hugo Lloris diving low to keep out Mehmedis drive. Shaqiri picked up the rebound and scuffed a low shot that rolled just wide. That close miss went unpunished by Benzema, who missed from the spot after being tripped by Johan Djourou in the 32nd. Yohan Cabaye hit the crossbar from the rebound. It mattered little as Giroud galloped into space down the left and picked out Valbuena at the back post in the 40th with a classic counterattacking goal. John Wensink Jersey .

White had been out of Edmontons lineup for six weeks with a hand injury. It was just the second win in the last five outings for the Eskimos (9-4), who moved into a tie for second with the Riders, both teams two points back of the first-place Calgary Stampeders. Saskatchewan has won eight of its last 10 games and dropped to 9-4 with the loss. The Roughriders have not been shutout since July 5, 1986, a 56-0 loss to Winnipeg. Edmonton took an early lead four minutes into the game after a third down gamble by Saskatchewan misfired with backup quarterback Seth Doege getting stuffed on a big tackle by Eskimos linebacker Dexter McCoil at the Riders 36-yard-line. On the next play, White made a couple of nice moves as he blazed his way into the end zone to make it 7-0. The Eskimos marched the ball down the field on their next possession, but had to settle for a 27-yard Hugh ONeill field goal. Saskatchewan had no first downs and just 11 total yards of offence in the first quarter. The Roughriders conceded a safety early in the second quarter and the Esks added a single on a missed field goal soon afterwards to put Edmonton ahead 13-0. Saskatchewan finally got its initial first down of the game five minutes into the second quarter, but them promptly lost the ball as quarterback Tino Sunseri, still subbing in for the injured Darian Durant, was intercepted by Ryan Hinds. Edmonton gained another point on a punt single with three minutes remaining in the first half. The Eskimos made it 17-0 with a 45-yard ONeill field goal five minutes into the third frame, a score that held up into the fourth as the game hit a major lull. J.T. Compher Jersey. Saskatchewan was finally in a scoring position after a 25-yard passing play to Weston Dressler took them to the Edmonton 35. However, on the next play Doege was picked off at the five by Eskimos defensive back Aaron Grymes. A 31-yard passing play to Fred Stamps led to a 10-yard pass from Mike Reilly to White for the Edmonton running backs second touchdown of the game. Over the final three weeks of this regular season the teams will meet twice, with both games taking place in Saskatchewan. The Riders return home to face the Calgary Stampeders next Friday, while the Eskimos hit the road for a game in Toronto next Saturday.
