Although France is leading Group B of the Euro Qualifiers by a huge margin, it didn’t stop them from thrashing Gibraltar last night. In fact, with the win, Didier Deschamps’ side has created five remarkable records. Here you go folks:

1) The biggest win in the history of UEFA Euro Qualifiers

With a final score of 14-0, France has managed to etch their name in the European books with the biggest victory in Euro Qualifiers. Prior to this, the biggest win was clinched by Spain, who defeated Malta 12-1 in December 1983. This was followed by the Netherlands’ 11-0 win against San Marino in 2011 and France’s 10-0 win over Azerbaijan in September 1995.

Additionally, Spain has clinched a 9-0 victory three times against Albania, Australia, and San Marino. Meanwhile, England clinched a 9-0 victory against Luxembourg, with Belgium and Russia also battering San Marino with nine goals as well.

2) The biggest win for France

Again, a brief spotlight on the scoreboard as the 14-0 score also marks the biggest win in the history of France. Earlier, Les Blues had clinched a remarkable 10-0 victory against Azerbaijan in the 1994 Euro qualifiers. Additionally, five 8-0 victories have been clinched against Kazakhstan, Jamaica, and Iceland, and two against Luxembourg in World Cup qualifiers and friendlies.

3) 300 career goals for Mbappe

Following another impressive hat-trick for his national team, Kylian Mbappe has reached a significant milestone in his career. He has now scored a total of 300 goals for both his club and country. Notably, the former Monaco player has set a new record as the youngest player to accomplish this feat at the age of 24 years and 10 months. With this achievement, the Frenchman has also surpassed Lionel Messi’s 11-year-old record, who clinched the same record in 2012 at 25 years and 4 months.

4) Youngest to play for France

Mbappe’s club and country’s young teammate, Warren Zaïre-Emery has also managed to feature in the record books. At just 17 years, 8 months, and 11 days old, he has become the youngest player to make an appearance for France post-World War 2. Before him, it was Real Madrid star Eduardo Camavinga, who was 17 years, 9 months, and 29 days.
