He hit a hat-trick in a training game match

France have already qualified for the last 16 of the World Cup but still have one group game to go, and Ousmane Dembele will be hoping to start their match against Denmark on Tuesday.

The Barcelona star started France’s opening win over Australia but was left out of the starting XI against Peru although he did appear for the last 15 minutes.

However, Dembele has been impressing in training and scored a hat-trick as the team beat a Spartak Moscow youth team 11-0.

It’s likely that Didier Deschamps will make changes for the clash with Denmark and hopefully we’ll get to see Dembele in action again.
