Amidst this spectacular display, a rising star, Warren Zaire-Emery, made his grand entrance onto the national stage. A mere 17-year-old, Zaire-Emery had already made an impressive 46 appearances for Paris Saint-Germain, 15 of them in this season alone. His remarkable form paved the way for his debut for the French national team, marking him as the youngest debutant in a century for France.
Zaire-Emery’s debut sparkled with a momentous goal, but alas, the joy was fleeting as an injury cut short his dazzling display. This rising talent, having scored within just 16 minutes, left the field amidst concerns about the severity of his injury.
France, already secured for Euro 2024, displayed an unstoppable performance, with a plethora of players—Mbappe, Thuram, Coman, Fofana, Rabiot, Dembele, and Giroud—all finding the net. Mbappe’s hat-trick not only contributed to the 14-0 triumph but also propelled his career goals to an astounding 300. Giroud sealed the victory with his double, capping off an unforgettable 14-0 win at the majestic Allianz Riviera in Nice.
