fbl euro 2024 qualifier fra gre

France wins 1-0 against Greece, in a match corresponding to the Euro Cup Qualifiers, starting the match with everything, but they deflated little by little, even France repeated twice a penalty, as the refereeing was very questionable.

Kylian Mbappe set another record as France stretched their 100 per cent start in European Championship qualifying Group B.

Mbappe’s 55th-minute penalty was his 54th goal of the season and took him clear of Just Fontaine to become the top French scorer in a single club and international campaign.

But there was an air of fortune about his winner after Odysseas Vlachodimos palmed away his initial penalty only for the referee to spot an infringement and order the kick to be retaken.

Kolo Muani and Jules Kounde also had good chances for France while Greece’s task became harder after Konstantinos Mavropanos was sent off for a foul on Muani in the 69th minute.
