Euro 2024 Qualifying LIVE: Aurelien Tchouameni STUNNER gives France 1-0 lead over Republic of Ireland, plus updates from across Europe



Follow Mail Sport’s live blog for the latest news from across Europe as the Republic of Ireland travel to France and Northern Ireland hope to pursue their dreams of qualifying for Euro 2024.

France 1-0 Republic of Ireland

45: Oh no. Northern Ireland don’t deserve to be down 3-1, but that’s exactly where they find themselves as wonderkid Benjamin Sesko delivers a brilliant strike.

Back in Paris, lone striker Adam Idah fails to recover a pass under his spell and Lucas Hernandez almost clears.

Those must stay in the second half!

France 1-0 Republic of Ireland

43: Almost halftime… and the Irish waste another free kick. To be honest, it’s probably their best chance to get anything against France today.

Maybe “wasted” is a bit harsh. They seem pretty well organized. But France are simply strong defensively and fight hard for each other.

They know they’ll have to withstand long balls like Egan and Duffy – and so far they’ve held their ground.

Is there a late twist before the break?

France 1-0 Republic of Ireland

37: KYLIAN MBAPPE CELEBRATES as his shot goes through Gavin Bazunu… but the flag is up for offside.

Tchouameni found Marcus Thuram, who was in an offside position, with Thuram’s dismissal finding Mbappe, who finished the game. The French public boos in good spirits.

Earlier, Dayot Upamecano headed a Griezmann corner from the side.

On the pitch, it’s still Wales 0-0 South Korea, Slovenia 2-1 Northern Ireland, the Netherlands 2-0 Greece and Denmark 2-0 San Marino.

France 1-0 Republic of Ireland

31: Jason Knight manages to win a foul as he attempts to break through the pitch, giving his team temporary respite.

But the French public has a beautiful voice. They know they are on top.

France 1-0 Republic of Ireland

27: Now Enda Stevens is down! He gets up cautiously and can continue. Not that you want to land a blow against lightning-fast winger Ousmane Dembele.

The Irish mainly camp around their own deep and narrow penalty area and let France play in front of them.

Not many outlets for them.

France 1-0 Republic of Ireland

22: John Egan did well twice, first blocking another shot from Rabiot from distance, then pushing Giroud away from a dangerous cross.

Oh what a shame. Giroud is injured and has to limp due to what looks like an ankle injury. Inter’s Marcus Thuram replaces him.

France 1-0 Republic of Ireland

20: Ireland looks shocked by this thunderclap from nowhere.

Defender Theo Hernandez is warned by the referee for a foul, to the boos of the Parisian public. Again, Ireland’s set piece is a bit aimless and comes to nothing.

Meanwhile, Petar Stojanovic has just restored Slovenia’s lead against Northern Ireland. His shot deflected off Jonny Evans and dribbled past.

AIM! France 1-0 Republic of Ireland

18: OPENER! Aurélien Tchouameni with this!

How wonderful it is too. Kylian Mbappe – doubly marked – at the entrance to the area wisely decides to give the ball to his teammate.

He throws it back to Tchouameni, who absolutely pulls off a brilliant curling finish past Gavin Bazunu and into the corner. What a strike.

France 0-0 Ireland

15: “Allez les Bleus” sounds around the Parc des Princes stadium.

Ireland had a few moments but the early stages are going as you would expect, with plenty of possession and control for the hosts.

France 0-0 Ireland

11: Burnley’s Josh Cullen is lucky enough to get a free kick as he looked to have fouled Adrien Rabiot. They work the free kick well but it is released.

Now Ogbene runs to the left, like Mbappe did, but his low cross is lined up nicely by Mike Maignan in goal.

By the way, Wales are 0-0 against South Korea in a friendly match.

France 0-0 Ireland

8: Ireland is not organized as I thought.

Egan, Collins and Duffy form the bottom three, with Stevens and Alan Browne as wingers, Josh Cullen and Jayson Molumby in the middle.

Ogbene and Idah are in the lead, with Bristol City midfielder Jason Knight being the most advanced midfielder supporting these two.

Southampton’s Gavin Bazunu does well to clear twice under pressure from the French forwards.


It’s already Slovenia 1-1 Northern Ireland! Andraz Sporar, who was once on loan at Middlesbrough, scored after three minutes.

But the Northern Irish equalized via Isaac Price in the seventh minute! Everything happens there.

But still aimless here.

FIRST CHANCES! France 0-0 Ireland

3: Adrien Rabiot’s low shot is well captured by Gavin Bazunu in goal.

A minute later, Kylian Mbappé rushes on the left, overtakes Nathan Collins and crosses … but Olivier Giroud’s shot is blocked by the big John Egan.

From the resulting corner, Adam Idah throws it as Bazunu looked well placed to catch it, but Mbappe hooks it.

KICK-OFF: France 0-0 Ireland

1: Good start from Ireland!

They almost instantly win a free kick as livewire Chiedozie Ogbene is clumsily brought down. Enda Stevens throws it… but it goes away.

Hymns sung!

History against Ireland

19 all-time fixtures, and Ireland’s last victory was in 1981.

Of course, one of the most famous encounters took place in 2009, and the venue for Thierry Henry’s famous handball…

But let’s not dwell on that. Still a bit raw (naturally) for the Boys in Green.

Too bad for Ireland that Brighton wonderkid Evan Ferguson is injured. He’s a fabulous player. And it hurts me to say that, as a Crystal Palace fan.

France undefeated in qualifying!

Didier Deschamps’ men have won four out of four: a hard-fought 1-0 victory over the Irish in Dublin, beating the Netherlands 4-0, Gibraltar 3-0 and a 1-0 win over Greece.

Ireland were dominated by France, lost 2-1 in Greece, but beat Gibraltar 3-0.

Here’s what Group B of qualifying for the European Championship looks like…

Strong, isn’t it, the Blues.

TEAM NEWS REACTION: Republic of Ireland

Five changes for the Irish.

Duffy arrives in the bottom five, as do Enda Stevens and Jason Knight at left and right backs respectively.

Alan Browne lines up in midfield, with Chiedozie Ogbene also alongside Adam Idah up front.

James McClean, Aaron Connolly, Jeff Hendrick some of the players on the bench.

Some past results…

Lithuania drew 2-2 against Montenegro, while Finland beat Kazakhstan 1-0 away.

France looks strong!

Tough mission for the Republic of Ireland tonight, huh? More reactions on team news to come…
