After a misstep in the debut of the European qualifiers heading to the Qatar 2022 World Cup, France added three points for the first time in Group D. The reigning champions defeated Kazakhstan 2-0 on the road and recovered from the slack start against Ukraine, where they drew 1-1 in Paris. However, it was not all good news for Les Blues, as Kylian Mbappé continues to be the focus of all the criticism. 

For the second date of group D, France won by goals from Ousmane Dembélé and Sergiy Maliy, against, at 19 and 44 minutes of the first half, respectively. Paris Saint Germain star Kylian Mbappé missed a penalty 30 minutes into the second half after being a substitute and entering for Anthony Martial.

This action by Mbappé put him back at the center of the controversy, since several consider that he is not performing in the best form of him since he is more aware of the possible transfer of him to Real Madrid than playing like him he knows how to do it.

Dembélé, Lionel Messi's teammate in Barcelona, had not scored a goal with Les bleus since June 2018. The team led by Didier Deschamps got its first win after the tie in the debut against Ukraine (1-1), last Wednesday .

Forward Antoine Griezmann started and surpassed the mark for consecutive games for the French national team. The former Atlético of Madrid and current Messi's partner reached 45 matches in a row and left behind midfielder Patrick Vieira, who had 44 matches between 1999 and 2002.
