HERNÁNDEZ WITH TWO ASSISTS AS FRANCE BOOK WORLD CUP SPOT

Wins for Saelemaekers' Belgium and Kessie's Ivory Coast, Krunić's Bosnia no longer in contention

It was another big day of international action for the Rossoneri away on international duty. Most notably, Hernández was a key figure in France’s comprehensive 8-0 victory over Kazakhstan in Paris. Indeed, Theo played the full 90 minutes and provided the assists for his country’s first and fourth goal, setting up Mbappé and Benzema to score. It’s a win that officially secures France’s spot at the 2022 World Cup: they now hold a four-point lead at the top of their group with one matchday remaining.

Saelemaekers’ Belgium will also be heading to Qatar. The Rossoneri man came on in the 62nd minute in the Red Devils’ 3-1 home success over Estonia. In Brussels, Alexis took Meunier’s place and was thus part of a win that saw the Belgians move on to 19 points. It wasn’t quite such a good night for Krunić, however, who started and was substituted after 66 minutes: Bosnia and Herzegovina suffered a 3-1 defeat against Finland in Zenica and are no longer in contention to qualify.

Finally, moving away from Europe and shifting the focus to Africa, Kessie was involved as Ivory Coast beat Mozambique 3-0 in Cotonou. The Ivorians thus remain top of Group D ahead of their upcoming six-pointer against Cameroon.
