France Cruises to 3-0 Win over Andorra in Euro Qualifier

PARIS – France dominated Andorra 3-0 on Tuesday to hang on to second place in Group H of the qualifying phase of the 2020 European Championships.

The 2018 World Cup winners have 15 points from six matches and are level on points with Turkey, but the Turks – victorious Tuesday over Moldova – lead the group by virtue of beating France in their first meeting.

Iceland, despite losing 4-2 to Albania, are third with 12 points.

Though it was the 100th match for Les Bleus at Stade de France, roughly a third of the nearly 81,000 seats were empty for the contest with last-place Andorra.

The roughly 55,000 people who showed up saw yet another goal by Kingsley Coman – making the most of his chance subbing for the injured Kylian Mbappe – and watched Antoine Griezmann miss from the penalty spot for the second time in three days.

Against Albania, Griezmann fired into the cross-bar. This time, Andorra goalkeeper Josep Gomes saved the penalty.

Coman, who had a brace in the Albania match, scored in the 18th minute against Andorra to put France up 1-0 at half-time.

Seven minutes after the re-start, Griezmann made up for his failed penalty by assisting on Clement Lenglet’s first international goal in three stints with the national squad.

The cross-bar thwarted the French twice in the second half and Gomes made several good stops to avert a rout.

France’s third goal materialized in stoppage time and was the work of a pair of subs.

The French won a free kick and Nabil Fekir took it. While Gomes made the initial save, the rebound ended up at the feet of Wissam Ben Yedder and the former Sevilla man scored.

“Next month we have matches against our two direct rivals for the qualifying places,” French coach Didier Deschamps said after Tuesday’s game.

Les Bleus will be away to Iceland before hosting Turkey on Oct. 14.
