Thierry Henry and Nicolas Anelka scored second-half goals Wednesday to give France a 2-1 win over Serbia in a World Cup qualifying match, relieving the pressure on coach Raymond Domenech.

Henry gave France the lead in the 54th minute, and Anelka added another 10 minutes later. Branislav Ivanovic headed a goal back for Serbia in the 76th after France again failed to properly defend a corner.
