Goals: France – Netherlands – Played on 03/24/ 2023

The French national team manipulated its Dutch guest, and defeated it by a clean four, today, Friday, at the Stade de France, in the opening of the two teams’ qualifiers for the Euro 2024 tournament.

The goals of the match were scored by Antoine Griezmann, Dayot Upamecano, and Kylian Mbappe (double) in the 2nd, 8th, 21st, and 87th minutes.

With this quartet, the roosters are at the top of Group Two, ahead of Greece, who defeated Gibraltar (3-0) on goal difference.

The French national team surprised its guest and did not give him a chance to breathe, as he conceded 3 goals in the first 21 minutes.

Less than two minutes later, Griezmann scored a goal from a pass from captain Kylian Mbappe, after cooperating with Kolo Mwani.

The Netherlands national team was confused, and its goalkeeper, Jasper Cillessen, committed a mistake that Upamecano took advantage of, to score a second goal after a cross from Griezmann.

After an organized attack, Mbappe scored the third goal, after an elaborate pass from Tchoamini and body deception from Kolo Mwani.

The Dutch reaction was not strong or sufficient to score the French goalkeeper, who dealt vigilantly and steadfastly with the attempts of Memphis Depay, Wijnaldum, and Van Dyck.

In the second half, the Netherlands national team seemed disjointed and lost, and its coach Ronald Koeman lost control of his players.

On the other hand, Mbappe, Kingsley Coman, and Kolo Mwani missed dangerous opportunities in front of the Dutch goal.

The Netherlands national team surrendered completely with the passage of time, and French substitute Moussa Diaby scored a fourth goal, but it was ruled out for offside.

The Netherlands players did not notice the danger, so Kylian Mbappe scored the fourth goal for the Dukes, after an individual effort.

And in stoppage time, Memphis Depay missed a penalty kick, which was saved by Mike Manian, who kept his net clean and denied the guests an honorable goal.
