Relentless France storm to 14-0 victory over Gibraltar as Kylian Mbappe inspires their biggest win ever

Nov 20, 2023

France recorded the largest every victory in their history on Saturday night as they thumped Gibraltar 14-0 in their Euro 2024 qualifier.

Kylian Mbappe scored a hat-trick against a side who went down to ten men after just 18 minutes through Ethan Santos’ red card.

It was a night that saw Warren Zaire-Emery score on his debut but then go down injured after, forcing to be substituted moments later.

The Paris Saint-Germain star is just 17-years-old but has already made 46 appearances for the French giants, with 15 of those coming this season.

As a result of his efforts, he was handed his first senior call-up with the France national team following multiple youth side matches.

Didier Deschamps named him in the starting XI against Gibraltar to make him the youngest men’s debutant for France in the last century.

And it took France’s latest prospect just 16 minutes to find the back of the net on his debut, a powerful close-range finish.

However, he went from joy to despair as he was rolling around injured on the byline after taking a knock in his strike.

Zaire-Emery’s night was then cut short as he was substituted, with it yet to be seen how serious the injury is.

France have already qualified for Euro 2024 by winning Group B, but that didn’t stop the World Cup finalists from playing at their best.

A Santos own-goal opened the scoring before Marcus Thuram made it 2-0 after just four minutes, with Zaire-Emery then scoring the third.

Kylian Mbappe, Jonathan Clauss, Kingsley Coman and Youssouf Fofana also found the target to give them a 7-0 lead at half-time.

Adrien Rabiot and Ousmane Dembele also got onto the scoresheet before Coman netted his second and Mbappe sealed a hat-trick, who now has 300 goals to his name aged just 24.

Olivier Giroud scored their final two goals of the night to seal a certainly resounding 14-0 victory at the Allianz Riviera in Nice.
