Coman Stars as France Ease Past Albania

Kingsley Coman scored twice as France’s march towards Euro 2020 qualification continued with a comprehensive 4-1 victory over Albania.

Antoine Griezmann’s penalty miss was all that marred a dominant display from the world champions, who were without Kylian Mbappe and Paul Pogba in Paris.

Coman’s second international goal got France up and running in the eighth minute, with Olivier Giroud doubling the hosts’ lead prior to the half-hour.

Griezmann failed to convert an international spot-kick for the first time soon after, but made amends with a sublime assist for Coman to double his tally midway through the second half.

Substitute Jonathan Ikone helped himself to a debut goal late on, as Didier Deschamp’s side – who conceded through Sokol Cikalleshi’s penalty late on – moved back to the top Group H in style.
