Hosts dominate Euro 2024 qualifier with 14 goals as Mbappe scores hat-trick

Kylian Mbappe, the talented forward wearing jersey number 10 for France, showcased an outstanding performance as he jubilantly celebrated scoring a goal in the UEFA EURO 2024 Group B qualifying football match against Gibraltar at the Allianz Riviera stadium. The French team asserted their dominance throughout the game, overpowering Gibraltar, who were reduced to 10 players, with an astonishing 14-0 triumph.

The game began with a remarkable momentum for France, as Gibraltar unintentionally scored two goals on their own net within the initial five minutes, granting the French team an early advantage. Warren Zaire-Emery, a youthful 17-year-old player making his debut for France, also left a notable impact by successfully scoring a goal before unfortunately being forced to exit the field due to an ankle injury. Nevertheless, his contribution was of great importance, resulting in him becoming the youngest player from France since 1914.

Gibraltar’s hopes were shattered even more when Ethan Santos received a red card for a brutal challenge on Zaire-Emery, who was about to score. As a result, Gibraltar was left with only 10 players on the field, making their task even more challenging.

Kylian Mbappe, a prominent player from France, displayed his abilities by successfully converting a penalty in the 30th minute. This goal sparked a series of four goals within a span of just seven minutes, with Jonathan Clauss, Kingsley Coman, and Youssouf Fofana all managing to find the back of the net. At the halfway point, France had already taken a dominant 7-0 advantage.

In the second period, Gibraltar didn’t find any relief as Adrien Rabiot opened the scoring, followed by Coman securing his second goal and France’s ninth. Ousmane Dembele, who substituted in, also left his mark by confidently netting the 10th goal. Mbappe continued to impress, finding the back of the net for the second time in the game with a skillfully executed shot from a cross delivered by Theo Hernandez. Mbappe continued to impress with an outstanding display that went beyond expectations. He sealed his hat-trick by unleashing a remarkable shot from a considerable distance of 40 yards, cleverly capitalizing on Gibraltar’s goalkeeper being out of position and flawlessly guiding the ball over his head. Olivier Giroud, who was also brought on as a substitute, contributed to the excitement by netting two goals during the final moments of the match.

By securing this triumph, France sustained their flawless track record in the qualifying phase, triumphing in all seven of their previous matches. As they gear up to face Greece in their upcoming game, the French team aims to maintain their commanding form and extend their winning streak.
