France 5-0 South Africa: Giroud scores, Mbappe net brace

France hammered South Africa 5-0 in an international friendly on Tuesday night, with former Chelsea star Olivier Giroud scoring a goal and Kylian Mbappe adding a brace.

It was an entirely dominant performance, with the home side firing 27 shots at South Africa’s goal, to earn a seventh consecutive victory in spectacular fashion.
