Les Bleus are Euro-bound
On Thursday afternoon, Luka Karabatic, Nedim Remili and their France team won 17-38 in Lithuania, thereby punching their ticket for Euro 2020.
With Nedim leading the line with an eight-goal haul, The Experts claimed dominant win over Group 6's bottom side Lithuania (one win and four defeats in five outings). France quickly took the lead (10’: 2-7) and never let it go, with Parisian right-back Nedim striking to put his side ten goal to the good just before the break (9-19).

Didier Dinart's men kept it up in the second term, conceding just eight goals as they added another 19 to their own tally. Luka also got in on the scoring action up front, hitting three second-half goals. Thanks to this win, France are officially through to Euro 2020, which will be played in Austria, Sweden and Denmark. But before then, they will round out their group-stage campaign with the visit of Romania to Nantes on Sunday.
