The armband-wearing Kylian Mbappe scored twice and provided an assist to lead France past the Netherlands 4-0.
Les Blues opened their Euro qualifying campaign with a commanding 4-0 victory over an injured Netherlands squad by scoring early and staying strong thereafter. The World Cup runners-up scored three goals in 22 minutes to cruise to a comfortable victory, and Mbappe was at the center of it all, helping to set up the opening goal and netting the third and fourth goals.
Within the first two minutes, Griezmann scored the game’s first goal by swishing a shot into the far corner off a feed from Mbappe. Upamecano doubled the lead minutes later before Mbappe made it three before the halftime break. Towards the end of the game, Mbappe got his second of the game and France’s fourth goal to kill it off.
It was the first brace for Kylian Mbappe for France after being named France captain after the retirement of Hugo Lloris, while it was not a good return for Ronald Koeman as the Dutch boss.
