Griezmann scores twice as France end five-game winless run

Antoine Griezmann returned to former club Atletico Madrid on loan from Barcelona on transfer deadline day

Antoine Griezmann scored twice as France beat Finland 2-0 in their 2022 World Cup qualifier to get back to winning ways.

The reigning world champions had to come from behind in their last two qualifiers to draw with Bosnia-Herzegovina and Ukraine.

Victory was never in doubt in this game as Griezmann finished off a fine move in the first half to open the scoring.

He made it 2-0 early in the second half, finishing from a tight angle.

Griezmann made the surprise move of transfer deadline day when he left Barcelona to re-join Atletico Madrid.

The 30-year-old has yet to play for his new club but has now scored three goals in his last three international appearances.

France are top of Group D with 12 points from six games and are seven points clear of Ukraine, who are second.
