After Kylian Mbappe was chosen as the captain, there were reports of a house fire in the France team. But as soon as the changed France team entered the field, all those news disappeared like firecrackers. The Dutch could not stand in front of the fierce French. The Netherlands were crushed 4-0 by France in the qualifying round of the Euro Championship. Just as Mbappe has had a flying start in winning the team as a captain, he seems to be flying in his personal performance as well. Mbappe scored two goals. He scored 5 goals in the last two international matches. Earlier, this PSG footballer scored a hat-trick against Argentina in the World Cup final on December 18 last year. France captain Hugo Lloris retired after the World Cup. Mbappe was announced as captain in his place just a week ago. As captain, the French take on the Netherlands in Group ‘B’, the toughest match of the Euro Championship qualifiers. The World Cup finalists were dominant from the start of the match. France lead 3-0 within 21 minutes. The pink-haired Antonio Griezmann opened the scoring in the second minute of the match. Dayat Upamecano scored the second goal in the 8th minute. Mbappe then scored his first and the team’s third goal. After finishing the first half 3-0, the French scored another goal in the second half. The French captain scored his second goal and the team’s fourth in the 88th minute. “We didn’t want to disappoint the fans,” said Mbappe after such a great victory. It was our first match after the World Cup. We wanted to maintain the rhythm in which we played the World Cup. Although the final did not go well for us. This big defeat for the Netherlands is a huge slap in the face for Ronald Koeman. Because it was his first match after taking over from Louis von Gaal and it started with a bad defeat. Von Gaal’s Netherlands played in the quarter-finals of the World Cup in Qatar. France lost in a tiebreaker after a 3-3 draw with Lionel Messi’s Argentina in 120 minutes in Qatar. Mbappe scored a hat trick in that match. France’s next match is against Ireland. The match will be held next Monday.
