France vs. Poland: Mbappé Scores Twice to Send Poland on Its Way

France took down Poland 3-1 at Qatar’s Al-Thumama Stadium in the 2022 FIFA World Cup‘s third match of the round of 16.

The usual suspects stepped up for France in its win to advance to the quarterfinals. Olivier Giroud scored late in the first half to give it a 1-0 lead and Kylian Mbappé scored twice in the second half to complete the victory.

In what was likely his final World Cup match, Robert Lewandowski scored on the match’s final play on a penalty kick to send him out on a somewhat positive note.

The winner of England-Senegal (2 p.m. ET, FS1 and the FOX Sports app) will take on France in the quarterfinals, which begin Dec. 9.

Here are the top plays!

France vs. Poland

13′: Szczęsny starts where he left off

After recording nine first-half saves in Argentina, Polish goalkeeper Wojciech Szczęsny made a diving save on Aurelien Tchouaméni’s promising strike to keep the game scoreless.

21′: Robert Lewandowski looking for a goal

The Polish star nearly made a spectacular goal happen as he searched to give his team a 1-0 lead in its hopes of upsetting France.


29′: Giroud so close

Olivier Giroud’s redirection in front of the net went just wide as France appeared to have Szczęsny beat, leaving the match scoreless. The goal also would’ve given Giroud the French record for most goals in international play. 

35′: Mbappé nearly makes magic

The French star faked out a Polish defender and nearly scored one of the top goals of the tournament – but his shot went just wide of the net.
