Paris Saint-Germain’s Kolo Muani outshone his teammate Kylian Mbappe as the Euros favorites finished the international break on a high on Tuesday night.

Randal Kolo Muani scored a goal and provided an assist in France’s 3-2 friendly victory over Chile on Tuesday, while Kylian Mbappe had a forgettable night.

France started off on the wrong foot by conceding an early goal for the second consecutive game, but they quickly recovered from the setback.

Unlike their match against Germany on Saturday, France responded swiftly to the early goal conceded by Chile, showing resilience and determination.

The home team equalized less than 15 minutes later, thanks to Youssouf Fofana’s deflected shot from a distance.

After that, Didier Deschamps’ team seemed to take control and started to take advantage of Chile’s vulnerable defense. Theo Hernandez found Kolo Muani with plenty of space, and Muani scored on his return to the French team.

Chile started the second half strongly but failed to capitalize on their early pressure, with Eduardo Vargas hitting the post with a close-range header. Shortly after, Kolo Muani set up Olivier Giroud for his 57th goal for France.

However, Chile fought back as 20-year-old Dario Osorio scored a fantastic long-range goal to make it a tense finish for the two-time world champions. In the end, France managed to hold on for the win.
