In Euro 2024 qualifying, France thrashed 10-man Gibraltar 14-0, recording their biggest-ever victory with seven goals in each of the two halves.
Although the hosts have already advanced to the Germany tournament, Kylian Mbappe’s hat-trick, which included a 40-yard strike, did not come easily.
Warren Zaire-Emery, a 17-year-old teenager, was one of seven different first-half scorers, becoming France’s youngest player since 1914 at 17 years, eight months, and 11 days.
He scored his debut goal before leaving the game due to injury. The match saw an early own goal by Ethan Santos, followed by Marcus Thuram’s goal and Zaire-Emery’s contribution, with Santos receiving a red card in the 18th minute.
The first half concluded with Mbappe converting a penalty, and further goals from Clauss, Coman, and Fofana, making it 7-0.
In the second half, France added more goals, with Rabiot scoring in the 63rd minute, and Coman and Dembele contributing. Mbappe secured two more, including a remarkable 40-yard finish.
Olivier Giroud capped off the dominant performance with two quick goals before the final whistle. France concluded the game with an overwhelming 39 shots on goal, while Gibraltar had none.
