France and England with their fourth victory in the European Championship qualifiers

France and England with their fourth victory in the European Championship qualifiers

France were in complete control from the start in front of 80,000 spectators at the Stade de France, but the Greek defense held firm in the first half. In addition, the French demanded five botched penalties in the first half for three alleged foul play against superstar Kylian Mbappe and Eddin from a Greek. It would have been justified to whistle twice in the attacks against Mbappe.

Shortly after the break, it’s time. After a kung fu attack by Konstantinos Mavropanos against Antoine Griezmann, who managed to continue playing with a bandage on his head, Spanish referee Antonio Mateo awarded Lahoz a penalty kick. Mbappe failed at first because of goalkeeper Odysseas Vlachodemus, but he got a second chance and sank the second attempt into the cross corner (55). The 24-year-old has 40 goals in 70 caps.

After an emergency stop by Mavropanos against Kolo Mwani (69′), referee Lahoz sent the offender a red card. Didier Deschamps wasn’t always a confident top ten player, but he’s still without a goal after four matches. Greece will likely compete with the Netherlands for second place.

The French women wore the French women’s jersey away from home during the warm-up period as a show of support for the French national team, which on Tuesday begin their World Cup preparations from July 20 in Australia and New Zealand.

England had no problem with North Macedonia and the score was 3-0 at half-time at Old Trafford in Manchester. Harry Kane converted his first chance (29th) to take a 1-0 lead and score in his sixth consecutive international. Then Bukayo Saka scored three goals (39, 47, 51), and Marcus Rashford (45), Calvin Phillips (64) and Kane from the penalty spot (73) scored the other goals.

After a dominant first half, Switzerland took a 2-0 lead over their nearest rival, Romania. Player Zaki Amdouni, 22, scored two goals (28, 41), thus in the fourth qualifier for the European Championship. But the Confederates squandered their fourth tangible win in the fourth game at the end. Valentin Mihaela (89 min 92 min) saved the Romanians from defeat, leaving them with only two points.

In Group H, Finland defeated San Marino 6-0 (2-0) within nine minutes (65, 72, 74), no less than thanks to a hat-trick from Daniel Hakans, and topped the standings. Kazakhstan tied for second after a 1-0 draw in Northern Ireland. Slovenia and Denmark come within two points, who drew 1-1 in Ljubljana. Adel Rasmus Hooglund, former Storm player (42 minutes), the hosts took the lead through Andraz Sporer (25).

In Group D, Türkiye extended its lead with a 2-0 home win over Wales. After eliminating the Welshman Joe Morell (41 minutes) and missing a penalty from Hakan Calhanoglu (64 minutes), Umut Nayer (72) and Arda Guler (80) saved Stefan Kuntz’s team.
