REAL MADRID superstar Karim Benzema scored another stunner during pre-season.
Real took on Club America in their US tour at the Oracle Park in San Francisco on Tuesday.
Los Blancos were trailing 1-0 following Henry Martin's opener after just five minutes.
But then Benzema, 34, took charge as he played a lovely one-two with Marco Asensio on the edge of the box.
The star striker then produced a marvellous curling strike from 30 yards around the defender and into the bottom left corner of Guillermo Ochoa to equalise after 22 minutes.
Fans absolutely lost it with that world-class finish and flooded social media to praise the talismanic Frenchman, who proved once more why he's a favourite for the Ballon d'Or.

And that one tweeted: "Classic Karim Benzema goal."
Benzema's marvellous goal, though, couldn't lead Real to victory in California.
Eden Hazard gave the reigning European champions the lead with a penalty kick on 55 minutes.
But America equalised with a spot kick of their own as Alvaro Fidalgo beat Andriy Lunin after 82 minutes.
Real came up short once more in pre-season just two days after losing 1-0 to rivals Barcelona in Las Vegas.
