The start was delayed by 10 minutes for heightened security measures following a tragedy in Brussels. Scotland took a surprise lead in the 11th minute, with Billy Gilmour striking sweetly after an unexpected error by Eduardo Camavinga. However, France, also having secured qualification for Euro 2024, quickly responded, with Pavard heading in Antoine Griezmann’s corner five minutes later.

Pavard achieved a milestone, becoming the first French player since Zinedine Zidane in the 1998 World Cup final to score two headed goals in a single game. He expertly dove to nod in a cross from Mbappe, who secured the third goal with a penalty after Liam Cooper’s foul on Olivier Giroud. Kingsley Coman added a fourth, capitalizing on Griezmann’s attempt that hit the crossbar from close range.
