France's new captain has already moved into an illustrious company with his goal contribution in the night's win over the Netherlands.

Six minutes later, Upamecano doubled the host's advantage to two by reacting the quickest to a rebound inside the inside the Dutch penalty area.

The game was literally put to bed in the 22nd minute when Mbappe added a third. This time, Aurelien Tchouameni found the Paris Saint-Germain superstar inside the penalty area, and he proceeded to calmly select his corner before smash the ball into the back of the net.

The Netherlands showed a bit of promise in the second half but could not fashion an adequate response. Memphis Depay's penaly miss in the 95th minute typified what the night's performance had been but that was not until Mbappe launched himself into the top five of France's all-time top goalscorer's list. The Frenchman made a joke of the Dutch defenders in their penalty box, before hitting another powerful shot beyong Jasper Cillessen.
