Sports Desk :
France stormed into the quarter-finals of the FIFA World Cup (WC) defeating Poland by three goals to one in their Round of 16 match at the Al Thumama Stadium in Doha of Qatar on Sunday.
Mbappe and Lewandowski embraced at the final whistle, and yes I probably was too old to use the phrase 'game recognising game'.
It was a comfortable win for France in the end, though Poland made them work. Olivier Giroud's record-breaking  goal just before half-time opened the door, and Kylian Mbappe marched through it with two scorchers in the second half. And just look what it means.
Olivier Giroud became France's all-time top scorer after his strike before the break gave the holders a 1-0 lead over Poland at halftime in their World Cup last-16 clash on Sunday.
Holders France dominated the opening exchanges and Poland goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny denied Aurelien Tchouameni and Ousmane Dembele before Kylian Mbappe set up Giroud to fire home in the 44th minute.
Kylian Mbappe surely put France into the quarter-finals with his eighth World Cup goal.
Poland were on the attack and Antoine Griezmann dropped back into his own area to clear the ball to Olivier Giroud.
Giroud found Ousmane Dembele, who picked out Mbappe on the edge of the box. Mbappe just curled the ball into the near top corner when we were all expecting the other side.
Marcus Thuram beat Matty Cash on the wing and found Mbappe in the box. The 23-year-old took a touch to get himself free and curled the ball into the far top corner. Perfect shot.
Lewandowski sent  Lloris the wrong way to get his second goal of the tournament. No clean sheet for Lloris on his big day, but a nice way for Lewandowski to say ta-ra.
