The French team dominated the game against Gibraltar, an opponent that was superior in every way and had home field advantage. In the ninety minutes of play, Gibraltar failed to muster a single shot, while France possessed the ball 66% of the time and attempted 31 shots.
But in the third minute, midfielder Ethan Santos’ own goal gave France the lead. Marcus Thuram’s goal exactly one minute later put the Roosters ahead 2-0. Aloha.
Zaire-Emery gave France a 3-0 lead in the sixteenth minute, and Gibraltar lost the match as soon as midfielder Ethan Santos was given a straight red card. By this point, Gibraltar’s will to resist had completely crumbled, and Mbappe and the French team produced a barrage of goals.
The French squad added 11 more goals in the last minutes, with Mbappe completing a hat-trick to ensure the ultimate 14-0 triumph. Mbappe’s goal to make it 12-0 was a masterwork; he struck from more than 40 meters out and found the back of goalkeeper Dayle Coleing’s net (Gibraltar).
Along with his hat-trick, Mbappe also contributed three assists to the goals of Clauss, Fofana, and Coman.
The largest win in the French team’s history is 14-0. In 1995, they defeated Azerbaijan 10-0, which was their greatest victory to that point.
Gibraltar also had the heaviest defeat in history, because their previous biggest loss was losing 0-9 to Belgium in 2017.
