Mbappe delivers a world class performance as France triumphs past Netherlands.

World Cup winners France enjoyed a celebratory homecoming as they paraded their trophy following Nations League victory over the Netherlands.

Backed by a party atmosphere in Paris, France began the brighter and took a deserved lead through Kylian Mbappe.

Despite creating little, the visitors – who failed to qualify for Russia 2018 – found a way back through Ryan Babel.

However, Olivier Giroud’s smart finish with 16 minutes remaining was enough to hand Les Bleus the points in Group A1.

Mbappe, scorer of four World Cup goals, almost had his second soon after, narrowly failing to make enough contact with Antoine Griezmann’s free-kick to trouble Netherlands goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen.
