With goals from Mbappe, Ben Yedder, Thauvin, and Zouma, France defeated Andorra and got back to the Euro 2020 victory road.

France was coming from a complicated defeat in Turkey last week, they needed to win in Andorra this Tuesday in order to forget that unexpected result.

In Les Bleus’ defense, Turkey is one of the most complicated venues where any national team or club can possibly play.

The Turkish fans tend to get too passionate and they practically help their squads win matches through sheer pressure.

It didn’t matter if France were the World Cup champions, winning there was almost impossible with those fans jeering against them during the whole 90 minutes.

Manager Didier Deschamps had the conviction that this new game against Andorra would be very different, the French squad played great football this time around.

Things actually started very well for Les Bleus, the counter-attacks would be very important for this match and the connections between stars would make the biggest difference.

After getting criticized for missing the chance to score for his national team against Turkey, Kylian Mbappe was eager to make an impression on this match.

The young forward was the one who started the goal-fest for Les Bleus, he scored the first goal of the evening with a beautiful finish above the goalkeeper.

At around the 11th minute, Mbappe got to move between the lines from the third quarter of the pitch as Griezmann saw him making the run.

The still Atletico Madrid forward sent the assist with a lot of advantage, Mbappe had the chance to reach the Andorra goalkeeper with the chance to score the goal.

Instead of sending a potent strike, the young player dinked the ball over the goalie’s head and scored France’s first goal of the evening.

According to WhoScored, this is Mbappe’s 100th competitive goal for both his club and country.

At around half an hour during the first half, Wissam Ben Yedder scored the second goal after an assist from Thauvin.

This match was starting to look quite easy for the French National Team, more goals were yet to come from Didier Deschamps’ squad.

In fact, Kylian Mbappe was about to make another impact but in a different way.

The youngster keeps proving that he doesn’t only score great goals, he can also provide beautiful assists for his teammates.

The PSG forward sent an elevated mass inside the box that appeared lost, but Thauvin was able to connect with a bicycle kick goal right before half time.

France was already winning this match with a 3-0 result.

The second half gave us a match with fewer emotions, but Kurt Zouma could score the fourth and final goal after a corner kick.

Other results in the Euro 2020 Qualifiers.

But we have to say that the standout performance of the evening came from Kylian Mbappe once again.

The young 20-year-old reached a number of goals that very few players in history can brag about.

The best part of it is that we still don’t know how many more goals will Kylian Mbappe score during his career, but we have a feeling that we’ll get to enjoy them over the next 15 years at least.

France is a lucky team for having such an amazing talent being this successful at such an early age.
