Wearing their lovely new 100th anniversary kit, France cantered to a 4-0 win over Iceland at the Stade de France on Monday night to record their second straight Euro 2020 qualifying victory.

Samuel Umtiti scored the first before Olivier Giroud added a second, his fourth international goal in eight outings since muddling through the World Cup without troubling the score sheet.

Kylian Mbappe added a third by collecting a precise pass from Antoine Griezmann and keeping his cool before prodding a finish in off the post.

The favour was then returned as Mbappe turned provider for Griezmann, who dinked home Les Bleus’ fourth after latching onto a perfect Mbappe back-heel.

The original move was so slick it was missed by the live cameras. Thankfully, a replay revealed the true majesty of Mbappe’s contribution…


Looks like that telepathic Pogba/Griezmann/Mbappe connection that won France the World Cup is still in perfect working order.
