Kylian Mbappé overtakes Platini, Jonathan Clauss comes back strong… The scores of the Blues against the Netherlands

The French team scored a sixth victory in as many qualifying matches for Euro 2024, Friday evening, in the Netherlands (2-1).

The ticket to Germany is validated. By winning against the Netherlands in Amsterdam (2-1), Friday October 13, the France team officially qualified for Euro 2024, played across the Rhine next summer. Carried by a double-scorer Kylian Mbappé, the Blues were also able to count on a very good right side and notable performances from Jonathan Clauss and Kingsley Coman.

Mike Maignan: 4/10

After five clean sheets, the goalkeeper of the France team conceded his first goal in these qualifiers (84th) and did not offer his most calm performance. Already deceived by Donyell Malen, finally flagged offside (55th), he was guilty of two small hand faults, without consequences (44th, 55th). A good save on a shot from Simons (36th).

Jonathan Clauss: 7/10

For his return with the Blues, the Marseillais scored points. Best player on the pitch in the first half, he immediately showed himself and projected himself forward. Decisive passer for Kylian Mbappé’s opener (3rd), he multiplied the runs and good combinations on the right side with Kingsley Coman. Replaced by Malo Gusto (80th).

Ibrahima Konaté: 6/10

Solid, he did not hesitate to go into the duel against the Dutch attackers (25th, 28th). Present on offensive set pieces, he failed to prove dangerous.

Lucas Hernandez: 5.5/10

Positioned as a hinge, the PSG defender made a clean copy. Only one notable error, a delay in the duel to let Joey Veerman strike alone on goal (29th).

Théo Hernandez: 6/10

He played high up the pitch and often found Kylian Mbappé. He also ensured behind, cutting and stopping numerous opposing attempts.

Aurélien Tchouaméni: 6.5/10

Still as solid as ever, the Real Madrid midfielder delivered another good performance in the blue jersey, a month after his manager’s match against Ireland. Valuable for controlling the game, he also struck from afar (22nd, 39th), without success.

Adrien Rabiot: 5/10

Beyond a good one-two with Mbappé on the second goal, the Juventus midfielder did not show himself much, behind his midfield comrades. Two losses of the ball in the last quarter of an hour of the first period (36th, 40th) led to two chances for the Dutch.

Antoine Griezmann: 6/10

For his 81st match in a row with the Blues, he made a lot of effort and brought a link to the French game. In the first half, he combined a lot with Clauss and Coman. But he was not always well found by his partners.

Kingsley Coman: 6.5/10

Established in place of Ousmane Dembélé, the Bayern Munich striker showed off his technique on the pitch at the Johan Cruyff Arena. Involved in the first goal in a good combination with Griezmann and Clauss, he made a difference on his side. He centered a lot, without succeeding in finding his teammates (19th, 37th). Replaced by Olivier Giroud (71st).

Randal Kolo Muani: 4/10

Still looking for his first goal in blue this year, the summer recruit from PSG showed himself to be in difficulty. Pressure on the defense’s restarts and a good recovery to his credit (41st), but without managing to weigh in the area. Replaced by Marcus Thuram (80th).

Kylian Mbappé: 8/10

The captain of the France team, who remained in four matches without shaking the nets, put an end to his drought. Well served by Clauss, he opened the scoring in the first minutes of play (3rd), then he doubled the lead with a sublime curling shot (53rd). Enough to overtake Michel Platini and become fourth top scorer in the history of the Blues (42 goals). With 4 shots, he is the player who attempted the most this evening.
