France wasted no time in putting their Germany result behind them.
Mbappe linking up very well with Ben Yedder to rifle a shot into the corner of the net to put France up by one. Iceland had a few moments infront of the French goal, but where hit on an extreme fast break. that man Mbappe showing why PSG spent to much money on him not so long ago, ran from the half way line, once again linking with Ben Yedder to produce a chance that Dembele could not miss.
Iceland were up against it, and their victory over Portugal seemed like a distant memory. Greizmann compunded their misery with an assist for Ben Yedder, who finished off the play in the six yard box. Iceland showed some spirit as Finnbogsan was unlucky not to reduce the deficit, after Lloris parry the ball out for a corner.
Ever master’s of the fast break, and with so much pace how could they not be, Dembele surged down the left wing. Yassim Ben Yedder was there to meet a cheeky dink, and Yedder header into a gaping goal put France four ahead with 25 minutes gone. Yedder returned the favor with a through ball for Dembele, who rounded the keeper and send the French support wild. Everytime the ball was at a Frenchmen’s foot they looked like scoring and sure enough the next play resulted in Mbappe adding to his goal tally. Half time could not have come quicker for Iceland.
In all honesty Iceland would of prefered for the full time whistle to be blown then. Les Bleus were on fire, Griezmann and Ben Yedder added a seventh, eigth and ninth goal to the scoreline. Everton man Siggursson scored for Iceland which just seemed to annoy France, as Greizmann just went up the other end and made it ten. Siggursson took advantage of a French defence who seemed to be thinking about all the wine they were going to consume at the final whistle and added his second. They didn’t have to wait long, as the ref blew it up for halftime and we have a fascinating final day fixtures for Group F.
