NAfter a big show by Kylian Mbappé, world champion France can definitely defend his title at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. The Equipe Tricolore won on the penultimate match day of Group D after a four-pack by the superstar 8: 0 (3: 0) against Kazakhstan and secured the direct ticket for the finals from November 21 to December 18 next year with first place.

Behind the French (15 points), Finland (11) moved up to second place in the play-off with a 3-1 (1-0) win in Bosnia and Herzegovina and kept the chance of their first participation in the finals. Ukraine (9) will have to play in Bosnia on Tuesday. Finland has the toughest possible task against France.

In Paris, Mbappé (6th, 12th, 32nd) made an early hat trick, hit number four followed in the 87th minute.
