Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappé scored a hat trick as France routed Gibraltar 14-0 for the biggest-ever victory in European Championship qualifying on Saturday.
Veteran forward Olivier Giroud made a significant impact, netting two goals after coming off the bench as Les Bleus surpassed Germany’s 13-0 record against San Marino in 2006 during the Euro 2008 qualifying rounds.
Young midfielder Warren Zaïre-Emery marked his international debut by becoming France’s youngest goal scorer, but unfortunately, he had to exit the match due to an injury. This achievement came against a Gibraltar team reduced to 10 players early in the game.
France’s largest victory prior to this was a 10-0 triumph over Azerbaijan in a European qualifying match back in 1995.
