Kylian Mbappe scored his first goals as France captain as the World Cup finalists kicked off their Euro 2024 qualifying campaign with a comfortable win over the Netherlands.
The hosts were ahead after just two minutes when Antoine Griezmann fell back on Mbappe’s pass.
Defender Dayot Upamecano made it 2-0 six minutes later as they closed in.
Mbappe then netted his 37th goal for France when he came on, before netting his second late in the game.
Griezmann would have been unhappy to be overlooked for the captaincy handed to Mbappe, but there was no sign of friction between the pair as they celebrated Mbappe’s 21st-minute first of the night.
The Paris St-Germain striker’s second minute was a superb solo effort as he let the Dutch players down in an attempt to block his shot before hitting a finish into the bottom corner.
Memphis Depay was lucky for a deep consolation in stoppage time for the visitors but his penalty was saved.
It capped a frustrating first game for Ronald Koeman in his second stint as Netherlands boss, although his cause was not helped by a flu virus that led to five players being sent home the day before the game.
Defenders Matthijs de Ligt and Sven Botman, striker Cody Gakpo, midfielder Joey Veerman and goalkeeper Bart Verbruggen had all contracted the disease.
