France thrashed Gibraltar 14-0 in their ninth UEFA Euro 2024 Group B match at the Allianz Riviera in Nice, France, on Monday (June 19). France remained top of the group with seven wins from seven matches (21 points), while Gibraltar remained bottom of the group (0 points) without a win.
France took the lead in the opening minutes on an own goal. Jonatang Klose’s ball from inside the penalty box found the feet of Ethan Santos, who slotted it home. Marcus Touraine and Warren Zairemery followed up to make it 3-0 in the first 16 minutes.토토사이트
To make matters worse, Gibraltar had a man sent off. In the 16th minute, Santos struck Zairemer on the right ankle as he scored, and the referee showed Santos a red card after video assistant referee (VAR) review.
After the numerical advantage, it was a French celebration. Kylian Mbappe, Klose, Kingsley Coman, and Youssouf Fofana found the back of the net to make it 7-0 at halftime. With seven goals in the first half, it was a rare situation where there was no duplicate scorer.
France continued their onslaught in the second half, with Adrien Rabiot opening the scoring in the 18th minute, before Coman and Ousmane Dembele rattled the opposition net, before Mbappe completed his hat-trick with a calm finish in front of goal in the 29th minute and a stunning long-range strike in the 37th minute.
Olivier Giroud stepped up in the second half. A powerful left-footed volley in the 44th minute and a spectacular bicycle kick in the first minute of second-half stoppage time completed his multi-goal haul. He could have shared a hat-trick with Mbappe had his goal not been disallowed for offside in the 33rd minute.
The victory also rewrote French soccer history. France’s previous largest margin of victory was a 10-0 win over Azerbaijan in 1995. In this match, France broke that record by a wide margin with a 14-0 thrashing of Gibraltar.
