PSG's France star Kylian Mbappé was happy to have provided a goal and an assist in Les Bleus' 4-0 Euro 2020 qualifying win in Andorra, but wouldn't be drawn on rumours connecting him to a summer move to Real Madrid.

Euro 2020 qualifying, Matchday 4

Estadi Nacional, Andorra La Vella

Andorra 0 - 4 France

Koldo Alvarez (Andorra coach): "We did our best and we gave everything, but we lost. If we hadn't conceded goal so early in the match, perhaps our mentality would have been different. The team worked hard and really no-one can ask for more than that."

Didier Deschamps (France coach): "It was a very different match form the 2-0 defeat in Turkey, and the context was very different. We adapted very well, with a lot of rigour and application. We dominated from beginning to end, but we could have scored more goals. These three points put us back in top spot [level on points with Turkey and Iceland]. We need to go out and collect many more. The whole squad was implicated tonight, and they reacted well after a long and exhausting year. Ending with a win is always positive."

Kylian Mbappé (France striker): "It's important to right the ship after a poor performance. After blowing it against Turkey, we came here looking to give our best. We were no-nonsense and we got the job done. Now we can go on holidays with a clear conscience. [When asked about a potential summer move to Real Madrid] Now is not the time to talk about Real Madrid. You always ask me the same question but now is not the moment."
