International watch: Lenglet scores debut France goal, Griezmann misses second penalty in a row, Semedo left out
- France beat Andorra 3-0 at home.
- Both Blaugrana men played full 90 minutes.
- Clement scored his first ever goal for the national side, Antoine gave the assist.
- Griezmann missed yet another penalty.
- Umtiti is already back in Catalonia with a bruised foot.
- Injured Semedo has been left out of Portugal's squad for Lithuania match.
Curiously enough, we yet again find ourselves in a situation where a magical night for one Barca player coincides with a disastrous night for another. At least this time they're both on the same side.
France beat small Andorra 3-0 with two major things happening. First of all, Clement Lenglet scored his first ever goal for the national side. After a good season in Catalonia, the 24-year-old has become a regular starter for Les Bleus, having just completed his third cap for France. Interestingly, the assist came from another Blaugrana man - Antoine Griezmann.
However, not even the goal contribution is going to ease the pain for the 28-year-old. Antoine became the first French player to miss two penalties in a row in the last ten years according to OptaJose.
Having finished their second match for France, the duo is set to return to Barcelona and join the rest of the squad in their preparation ahead of next La Liga clash against Valencia.
Samuel Umtiti had also been called up for the French team but had to make his trip back to Barcelona after an unlucky injury. His return date remains unknown.
Speaking about injuries, Nelson Semedo has been left out of Portugal's matchday squad against Lithuania after having received a knock in the last match. According to reports, the injury is not that serious. The right-back is also expected to soon make his trip back to Catalonia.
