France 4 – 1 Bulgaria [2018 World Cup Qualifier] Highlights 2016 – The Atletico Madrid striker bagged a brace as Didier Deschamps’ charges registered their first victory in the 2018 World Cup qualifying phase at Stade de France on Friday

Two goals from Kevin Gameiro helped France return to winning ways with a 4-1 thumping of Bulgaria in Friday’s World Cup qualifier in Paris.

The Atletico Madrid striker marked his first start for his country since November 2011 in style as Didier Deschamps’ side came from behind to record their first victory in Group A and put last month’s disappointing stalemate with Belarus behind them.

France lost out on a place at the 1994 tournament thanks to an infamous 2-1 home loss to the visitors 23 years ago, and they were given a scare when Mihail Aleksandrov scored an early penalty after Bacary Sagna fouled Georgi Milanov.

The home side responded with a quick-fire double, however, thanks to Gameiro’s superb headed finish before Dimitri Payet’s cross found the corner of the net.

Antoine Griezmann, who received his award for Euro 2016’s Player of the Tournament before kick-off, struck a fine third shortly before the break to give France a stranglehold on the game that they never looked likely to relinquish.

Gameiro netted his second from a Griezmann cross to make it 4-1 in the second half, as France moved on to four points from two games and set up a tantalising clash with Netherlands in Amsterdam on Monday.

Stade de France was in fine voice as the teams entered the pitch, but the home fans were silenced with just six minutes of the match played.
