France Defeats Greece in Euro 2024 Qualifier, Thanks to Mbappe's Penalty Kick
France secured their place in the Euro 2024 tournament after a narrow victory over Greece, with Paris Saint-Germain superstar and team captain Kylian Mbappe scoring the decisive goal. Mbappe's penalty kick in the second half ensured France's qualification, marking another milestone in their impressive run.
The French team dominated Group B with 12 points from four games, maintaining a clean sheet and a six-point lead over Greece. This victory follows their 3-0 triumph over Gibraltar last Friday. France's coach, Didier Deschamps, expressed satisfaction with the team's performance, despite it being a challenging season for the players.
France's journey to the Euro 2024 began with victories over the Netherlands and the Republic of Ireland in March. As last year's World Cup runners-up, the French team is expected to perform well in next year's finals in Germany. Their next match is against Ireland in September.
Mbappe's future in club football has been a topic of discussion, as the 24-year-old confirmed he would not extend his contract with PSG, which expires next year. This decision has fueled speculation about a possible transfer, although Mbappe has stated his intention to stay with the French champions for the upcoming season.
In the match against Greece, Mbappe's initial penalty kick was saved by Greek goalkeeper Odysseas Vlachodimos. However, due to encroachment by a Greek defender, Mbappe was awarded a second chance, which he successfully converted. This goal marked his 13th in 13 games for France this season, in addition to 41 goals in all competitions for PSG.
With 40 goals in 70 games for his country, Mbappe is just one goal shy of equaling Michel Platini's record in a French shirt. Greece, the 2004 European champions, experienced a resurgence under Uruguayan coach Gustavo Poyet but were unable to overcome France's prowess in this match.
Despite playing with an extra man after Greece's Konstantinos Mavropanos was sent off in the 69th minute, France did not extend their lead. Nevertheless, the victory secured their place in the Euro 2024 tournament, where they will aim to continue their impressive form.
