Antoine Griezmann came up with a goal and an assist in France’s final Euro 2020 qualifier against Albania on Sunday.

Les Bleus had already booked their place in next summer’s finals but signed off their campaign with a convincing victory.

Griezmann set up the opener for Corentin Tolisso on eight minutes with a free-kick into the box for the Bayern Munich man to head home.

The Barcelona star then added France’s second on 31 minutes by tapping home Leo Dubois’ cross into the penalty area.

His goal moves him up the list of France’s all-time leading goalscorers:

Griezmann could have had more assists too. He set up Giroud for a couple of chances in what was a really bright performance from the 28-year-old.

Both Griezmann and Clement Lenglet played all 90 minutes of the win that ensures France finish top of Group I, two points ahead of Turkey in second place.
