Warren Zaire-Emery becomes youngest France goalscorer at 17


In a historic night for French football, Les Bleus secured their biggest-ever win with a stunning 14-0 triumph over Gibraltar in a Euro 2024 qualifier played on Saturday.

The match also yielded two more historic records, as PSG wunderkind Warren Zaire-Emery became both France's youngest post-war debutant before turning 18 while he also turned into the youngest-ever goalscorer at just 17 years and 255 days.

Zaire-Emery's remarkable debut started with him being named in the starting XI of France, breaking the record as the youngest post-war debutant on the senior team Les Bleus.

His goal in the 16th minute added to the team's dominant performance and also to France's history books, although WZE was forced off the field after suffering an ankle injury on the goalscoring play.

Mbappe, in addition to securing a hat-trick in his 74th international appearance, played a pivotal role in setting up goals for his teammates getting three assists on top of everything.

The relentless offensive display of the Frenchmen included goals from Jonathan Clauss, Kingsley Coman, Youssouf Fofana, Antoine Griezmann, Adrien Rabiot, and Olivier Giroud.

France's victory not only extended their unbeaten streak to 21 games but also secured their place among the top seeds for the Euro 2024 group stage draw.

This match will undoubtedly be remembered as a remarkable moment in French football history, even though it came against a nation with a population of fewer than 35,000 people. For context, Paris hosts 2.1 million warm bodies.
