Soccer-France's Giroud ends goal drought with stunning winner over Dutch


France striker Olivier Giroud ended a run of 10 international games without a goal by netting a stunning winner as the world champions claimed a deserved 2-1 victory over the Netherlands in their Nations League clash on Sunday.

The night started with a rousing rendition of La Marseillaise as France played their first home fixture since lifting the World Cup in July, and ended with a comfortable victory for the hosts at the Stade de France.

The excellent Kylian Mbappe set France on their way with a first-half opener, but the veteran forward Ryan Babel equalized for the visitors with their only meaningful shot on target.

Giroud produced a moment of magic 15 minutes from fulltime to seal the win, as France recorded a fifth successive victory over the Dutch.
