Les Bleus get is right against Bulgaria, but I was HAPPY for Gameiro the most!
This evening, Kevvy G (as I call him) ran off with the headlines after scoring a brace. This was his first start for Les Bleus since November 2011, but please, don’t get carry away. He is not replacing Olivier Giroud.
Here’s how we lined up:
Les Bleus registered their first victory in the 2018 World Cup qualifying phase after that stalemate against Belarus. The Stade de France was given quite the scare when Bacary Sagna fouled Georgi Milanov and Mihail Aleksandrov converted from the spot in the 6th minute. Les Bleus responded in the 23rd minute through Kevin Gameiro who scored a superb header to make it 1-1. Three minutes later, Dimitri Payet’s cross finds the corner of the net making it 2-1. Antoine Greizmann joined the party in the 38th minute. Gameiro scored the last goal of the game in the 59th minute giving Les Bleus a much-needed boost.

ALLEZ LES BLEUS!!
