  • GOAL! FRANCE 2-0 KAZAKHSTAN! This is too easy for France. Lloris throws the ball upfield immediately to set the hosts away on the counter. Pokatilov rashly races out of his box to close down the onrushing Coman. France's right wing-back beats him and fires in a low cross for Mbappe who slots into the empty net.

  • GOAL! FRANCE 3-0 KAZAKHSTAN! Mbappe completes his hat-trick with a powerful header past Pokatilov. Coman whips a delicious cross into the box and the Paris Saint-Germain striker rises high to plant it into the far corner. Job done.

  • GOAL! FRANCE 5-0 KAZAKHSTAN! Poor Kazakhstan. They're getting blown apart here. France unpick the visitors with two passes through the middle and Benzema rolls the ball across goal to hand Benzema the most basic of tap-ins.

  • GOAL! FRANCE 6-0 KAZAKHSTAN! Rabiot scores perhaps the simplest goal of France's six so far, powering a free header towards goal from Griezmann's corner. It's straight at Pokatilov but too fast for him to keep out.

  • GOAL! FRANCE 8-0 KAZAKHSTAN! Kazakhstan have been completely demolished. Mbappe gets his fourth goal of the match, slotting into the bottom left corner after latching onto Diaby's pass on the break. The Kazakhs were guilty of having a crazily high line again.
