France 3 Poland 1 LIVE RESULT: Stunning Mbappe brace sets up potential World Cup quarter-final with England – updates | The Sun

KYLIAN MBAPPE has fired France into the World Cup quarter-finals, scoring twice in a 3-1 win over Poland.

Olivier Giroud opened the scoring with a fine effort before half-time and it's got even better for Les Bleus since.

Then Mbappe picked the ball up on the edge of the area and took his time before slamming the ball into the top corner to put France in command.

And the PSG star did the same minutes later, putting the ball in the opposite corner before Poland scored a late penalty.

    Make the most of it Olivier

    Olivier Giroud became France's highest goalscorer of all time.

    His goal took him to 52 goals for Les Bleus and one goal ahead of Thierry Henry.

    With Kylian Mbappe on 33 goals, at just 23-years-old, that record may not stand for too long.
