France 4-0 Iceland

World champions France easily beat Iceland to gain their second victory in two Euro 2020 qualifying matches.

Samuel Umtiti put the hosts ahead with a glancing header from Kylian Mbappe’s left-wing cross after 12 minutes.

Oliver Giroud added a second when the ball was pushed into him following Benjamin Pavard’s right-wing cross.

Kylian Mbappe scored a third from Antoine Griezmann‘s pass, before the Atletico Madrid striker netted a fourth six minutes later to complete the scoring.

France have now managed eight goals in two qualifying games, having beaten Moldova 4-1 in their opening qualifier on Friday.

Didier Deschamps’ side lead Group H on goal difference, ahead of Turkey, who also have six points from their two games.
