Euro 2024 Qualifiers: Kylian Mbappe And France Crush Netherlands 4-0 - In Pics

Kylian Mbappe marked his first game as France captain with a brace in a 4-0 crushing win over the Netherlands in Euro 2024 qualifying on Friday. In Paris, France were three goals up before the midway point in the first half of their Group B opener against a depleted Dutch team. Kylian Mbappe, who has taken over the armband from long-term skipper Hugo Lloris, set up his vice-captain Antoine Griezmann to open the scoring inside two minutes at the Stade de France. Griezmann set up the second goal in the eighth minute as his free-kick was bundled in from close range by Dayot Upamecano after Dutch goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen failed to clear the ball. Mbappe who terrorised the Dutch defence, then ran through to make it 3-0 after Randal Kolo Muani had cleverly left an Aurelien Tchouameni through ball, and the Paris Saint-Germain superstar wrapped up the win in emphatic fashion late on.
