France Beat Poland to Qualify to World Cup Quarter-Finals

Sun 04 Dec 2022 | 11:25 PM

Olivier Giroud and Kylian Mbappe scored the goals as France recorded a 3-1 victory over Poland to advance to the quarter-finals of the 2022 World Cup.

The opener from Giroud saw the center-forward become France's highest goalscorer of all time, with the 36-year-old, who has benefited from Karim Benzema's absence at the tournament, moving past Thierry Henry.

Mbappe then doubled France's advantage in the 74th minute before scoring again late on, with the Paris Saint-Germain attacker producing another standout performance for Didier Deschamps's side at the tournament.

Robert Lewandowski found the back of the net from the penalty spot in the final exchanges, but it only proved to be a consolation for Poland.

The reigning champions will take on either England or Senegal in the quarter-finals of the competition on December 10.
