France registers the biggest victory in the history of qualifying for the European Championship or the World Cup


The French Team Achieves Historic Victory in Qualifying Match

‘Bleus’ Secure First Place and Seeded Position in Euro Cup Draw

France Dominates Gibraltar with Record-Breaking 14-0 Win

The French national team showcased their prowess and took full advantage of Gibraltar’s vulnerability, especially after they were reduced to ten men in the 18th minute. This extraordinary victory, with a scoreline of 14-0, not only sets a new record for the largest result in the history of qualifying matches for a Euro Cup or a World Cup, but also secures France’s first-place position and a seeded spot in the final phase of the Euro Cup.

Furthermore, this remarkable win also shattered several records for the French team. They surpassed their previous record of 10-0 against Azerbaijan in 1995, achieving the highest number of goals in a single match. Additionally, they broke the record for the most goals scored in a qualification for a European Championship, surpassing Germany’s 13-0 victory against San Marino in 2006. The French team also set a new record for the most goals scored in the first half, with seven goals, surpassing the previous mark of six goals in three games.

These records hold even greater significance when considering the data provided by Mr. Chip. With this resounding victory, France becomes the first European team to score 14 or more goals since Denmark achieved the feat in a friendly match against Iceland in 1967 (14-2). Moreover, such a wide margin of victory between two European teams has not been witnessed since the Germany-Russia match during the 1912 Olympic Games, which ended with a scoreline of 16-0.

A Triumph Marked by Unprecedented Records

This historic triumph of the ‘Bleus’ will forever be etched in the history books, alongside the painful 17-1 defeat suffered against Denmark in 1908.

In addition to the team’s success, debutant Warran Zaire-Emery made his mark by scoring the third goal for the ‘bleus’. At the age of 17 years, 8 months, and 10 days, he became the youngest scorer in an official match wearing the France shirt.

As anticipated, coach Deschamps deployed a 4-2-3-1 formation, with the young attacker from Paris Saint Germain accompanying Rabiot in the center of the field. Up top, Coman, Griezmann, and Mbappé provided support to Thuram in their quest for goals.

The goals came swiftly, with two goals scored within just one minute. Santos scored an unfortunate own goal in the 3rd minute, followed by Coman taking advantage of a poor clearance by Coeling just a minute later.

In a flash, France rendered the defensive strategy of the modest Gibraltarians futile, as they faced the ten field players who formed two compact lines in front of their goalkeeper.

The game took a decisive turn in the 16th minute when debutant Warran Zaïre-Emery scored the third goal, resulting in a straight red card for Santos, who had fouled him. Unfortunately, the PSG youngster sustained an injury and had to be substituted.

From that point onwards, France’s goals flowed effortlessly, given the vast difference in quality between the two teams and France’s numerical advantage.

Mbappé converted a penalty, Clauss scored with a shot from outside the area, and Coman and Fofana added to the tally with well-crafted plays, bringing the scoreline to an impressive 7-0 at halftime. The scoreline could have been even higher if the French had been more clinical in their finishing.

essional and have devastated. They have won grand tours, Monuments… but that is not normal. People have to understand that this is not a youth competition. Young people must be given time to develop, to mature and to learn little by little. It cannot be demanded that all the young people who arrive have the same impact as those I have named before. You have to give them margin and patience.

With everything you’ve experienced, what advice would you give to young cyclists starting out now?

Enjoy. Let them enjoy what they do because this is a passion. Be persistent in your goals. That they are constant and make an effort in their daily work. Let them learn from their mistakes, because this is continuous learning. Let them be humble and value their colleagues and the people who help them. In short, they should be good athletes and good people.

And what plans do you have for the future?

Now I’m going to take some time to disconnect. I have been training a kid in the lower categories and I would have liked to continue, but with the knowledge that I am going to acquire with sports management, I could still have a position on a team. The idea is to take a more advanced course and be able to help the youth team and continue enjoying cycling from another perspective, from the car. And, of course, being with the family, now is the time to dedicate more time to them and enjoy them.

Enric Mas, Nairo Quintana, Alejandro Valverde, Andrés Iniesta… A long list of names he has had as teammates. This year he will also have to live with Miguel Indurain in the tribute that will be held for him at the Vuelta.

Listen to me, I have all my admiration for him. I admire him a lot. I think it represents a lot. I know him, he has directed me on several occasions, we have gone by car together… he is a person who awakens admiration, respect and affection in me. He is a phenomenon. I think it will be one more suffering among the sufferings I have in life. He has a lot to give and he is going to leave us with our mouths open on some things.
