    85’ Chance for France!

    Giroud gets the ball right in front of goal but his shot is too high as it goes over the net to the relief of the Polish fans, who are expecting to go home at least with a solitary point.

  • June 25, 2024 23:14
    84’

    Poland is increasing its pressure on France, with Zielinski’s cross, after a clearance is hit on the volley by Poland, which is again stopped by the French defence.

  • June 25, 2024 23:02
    72’

    Lewandowski wins the ball in front of the box and goes solo with a strike which is just wide. And his attempt is greeted with loud cheers from the Polish fans, who have come to see their highest goalscorer find the net, despite the team out of the tournament.

  • June 25, 2024 22:58
    69’

    66’

    Kounde gets the ball along the right and he passes to Griezmann, who goes for goal instead of passing to Giroud, but his shot fails to trouble the keeper at all.

  • June 25, 2024 22:54
    64’

    Dembele gets the ball in his own half and then sprints into the final third along the right flank and then tries a cross, which is too high as Mbappe, almost with his hand in the air, fails to get it.

    61’ Triple change for France!

    In: Eduardo Camavinga, Antoinne Griezmann, Olivier Giroud

  • June 25, 2024 22:49
    59’ Another chance for France!

    France looks to be flying at the moment. Barcola marches up the pitch, cuts to his right, shifts to his left and then right and shoots on target, forcing a save by Skorupski.

    GOAL
    56’ Mbappe scores for France!

    Euro 2024: Mbappe scores his first-ever Euros goal in France’s clash against Poland

    This is the France captain’s first-ever goal in the Euros. Mbappe did feature in the Euro 2020 edition but failed to find the net in its four games since it was knocked out in the Round of 16.

    55’

  • June 25, 2024 22:40
    49’ Chance for Mbappe!

    Mbappe gets the ball in front of the penalty box and goes for goal. But his shot is just off-target which means he would have to wait more to find his first goal in the Euros.

  • June 25, 2024 22:35
    Second half begins!

    France starts the second half right when it ended the first half, on an offensive note.

  • June 25, 2024 22:19
    HALFTIME
    All square at the break!

  • June 25, 2024 22:18
    45+2’

    France gets a free-kick outside the penalty box, with Dembele taking it. However, Skorupski continues to be France’s Achilles heel, with a timely push of the ball out of danger.

    45’ France raining attacks!

    Mbappe makes a run into the box again and this time, in an one-on-one situation with the goalkeeper, tries a right-footed shot past him. However, Skorupski comes out on top yet again.

  • June 25, 2024 22:15
    44’ Chance for France!

  • June 25, 2024 22:13
    42’ Chance for France!

    Barcola sets up Mbappe in front of goal, whose shot is saved by a fingertip save by Skorupski. What a save by the goalie, who has been absolutely brilliant in this match so far.

  • June 25, 2024 22:12
    40’

    Rabio sets up Mbappe at the edge of the box, who initially controls the ball but later goes down appealing for a penalty. The referee, however, asks him to get up.

  • June 25, 2024 22:09
    37’

    Dembele takes control of the ball along the right and passes it to Kante, who almost serves the shot on a plate for Tchouameni to strike, but his shot goes out off a deflection for a corner. Seconds later, Saliba tries a shot, which flies over the net.

  • June 25, 2024 22:05
    33’

    Zalewski and Szymanski pair up to get the ball into the box but France clears it only as far as the midfield. And seconds later, Lewandowski is set up in the box with a cross from the left but his header, off a slight deflection off Saliba, goes out of play, just off-target.

    The referee, surprisingly, gives a goal kick to France.

  • June 25, 2024 22:03
    32’

    Mbappe gets the ball along the left but is firmly marked by Zielinski as he looses control of the ball.

  • June 25, 2024 22:01
    28’

  • June 25, 2024 21:57
    26’

    Dembele takes a corner kick, which lands safely into the ands of Skorupski, who staves off yet another attack by Les Blues. He has been impressive in his maiden start in Euro 2024.

  • June 25, 2024 21:55
    23’ Chance for Poland!

    Poland gets the ball into the final third, with Zalewski trying a cross for Lewandowski in front of goal. However, Saliba outjumps the Barca forward to get the ball out of danger.

  • June 25, 2024 21:54
    23’

    France is eventually looking frustrated, having not been successful to open the scoring in this match, despite coming close twice. Dembele, meanwhile, pushes a midfielder down for a Poland free-kick.

  • June 25, 2024 21:50
    19’ Chance for France!

    France attacks on the counter with Kante sprinting into the final third and passing to Dembele on his right. Dembele’s shot is saved and the ball gets back to Kante, whose pass now fails to find anybody as the ball goes out for a goal-kick.

  • June 25, 2024 21:49
    18’

    It is interesting to know that France has not scored a goal from its own players so far in the tournament, the only team to do so. It has won one match, off an own goal by Austria.

  • June 25, 2024 21:48
    17’

    Zalewski gets the ball along the left and tries to cross to his right, into the centre, which is blocked by Kounde.

  • June 25, 2024 21:46
    14’ Chance for Poland!

    Szymanski takes the corner kick, which falls to Urbanski in the box. The left-footed hit by the No. 26 is saved by Maignan, who gets into a duel with Lewandowski while trying to clear the ball.

  • June 25, 2024 21:43
    Did you know?

    This is the third meeting between France and Poland in a major tournament, and first at the UEFA European Championship. Poland won a third place play-off match 3-2 at the 1982 FIFA World Cup, while France won 3-1 in the round of 16 at the 2022 World Cup. (Source: Opta)

  • June 25, 2024 21:41
    11’

    Poland has come into the match with a lot more aggression than it has shown in the tournament so far, naturally, with Lewandowski leading the charge in the front.

  • June 25, 2024 21:39
    8’

    Dembele makes a circular run along the right to find a space in the box, but his low cross runs into one of the red shirts in the Poland box, who hoofs the ball away. 

  • June 25, 2024 21:37
    6’ Save!

    Poland marches up the pitch with one touch passes and, after a block by Saliba, Zelinski takes a shot from outside the box, forcing a save by Maignan.

    4’

    Barcola gets the ball on the left of the 18 yard box and tries a cross which is blocked by Moder for a France corner. Dembele takes the corner, which Upamecano could not reach as he was heavily marked.

  • June 25, 2024 21:34
    3’

    Kounde gets the ball along the left and is challenged by Zalewski, with the latter getting the ball eventually. And France coach Deschamps is furious.

  • June 25, 2024 21:32
    2’

    The match begins with France looking for an attack straight away. But Poland, with a closely-knit midfield, stops the build-up.

  • June 25, 2024 21:31
    In different shades!

    Lewandowski and Mbappe hugs each other before kick-off - a moment to look back on when Bayern played Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League final. It was Lewandowski who had reigned supreme then. Who will it be this time?

  • June 25, 2024 21:29
    Stat attack
  • June 25, 2024 21:25
    Minutes to kick off!

    The players of both sides walk out of the tunnel. France, led by Mbappe, is in blue while Poland, led by Lewandowski, starts in red. The players stand shoulder to shoulder as the air around the stadium turns red with flares from Polish fans.

    MATCH PREVIEW

    France will try to finally get the goals flowing against already-eliminated Poland as it seeks to finish top of its Euro 2024 group on Tuesday, but questions remain about the availability of key forward Kylian Mbappe.

    The striker - who broke his nose in France’s opener against Austria - donned a mask to take part in a practice match on Saturday against the under-21 side of German club Paderborn in which he scored twice and set up two other goals.

    France has so far failed to find the net in Germany - it beat Austria in its opener courtesy of an own goal and drew 0-0 with the Netherlands - so coach Didier Deschamps will be tempted to bring Mbappe back against Poland.
