Real Madrid man netted a magnificent goal as Laurent Blanc's side finished its Euro 2012 preparations with a crushing victory over Estonia and wants more in Ukraine and Poland

Karim Benzema wants France to maintain its recent good form into Euro 2012.

Laurent Blanc's side is unbeaten in its last 21 fixtures and comfortably beat Estonia 4-0 on Tuesday night, with the Real Madrid man netting a stunning first-half effort.

Following the match, Benzema told reporters: "The most important thing is to have won.

"I was feeling fit and fresh, like the most of my team-mates. It's always great to score."

France will begin its Euro 2012 campaign against England on June 11 and Benzema is looking for his teammates to continue their winning ways in Ukraine and Poland.

"We must remain concentrated," he continued. "We have recorded three good wins in our friendlies, now we will enter the heart of the matter. We have a good group and I hope that we will continue this form."
