France beats Brazil 1-0, advances to semifinals

Thierry Henry finally made his mark in a game that matters, scoring the only goal in the 57th minute to lead France into the semifinals of the World Cup with a 1-0 win over defending champion Brazil. Zinedine Zidane sent a curling free kick to the unmarked Henry, who had the whole right side of the net for his right-footed volley. France will face Portugal in the semifinals on Wednesday in Munich.
