Euro 2012 qualifying: France 3 Albania 0

8 October 2011 00:10

France maintained their place at the top of Group D with a comfortable 3-0 win over Albania in Euro 2012 qualifying at the Stade de France.

Florent Malouda opened the scoring in the 11th minute before Loic Remy doubled the home team's lead seven minutes before half-time.

Anthony Reveillere scored his first international goal on 67 minutes to secure three points for Laurent Blanc's side.

France face Bosnia and Herzegovina in Paris on Tuesday knowing that a draw would be enough to finish ahead of the Balkan side and claim a place at next year's finals in Poland and Ukraine.

The hosts started brightly and were soon ahead as Remy crossed for Malouda to hit home the opener after a slight deflection.

France nearly doubled their lead on 25 minutes, but Adil Rami could only head wide from close range after Yohan Cabaye's inviting corner into the penalty area.

Blanc's side did not have to wait long until they added a second as Remy latched onto a Samir Nasri through ball before finishing from a tight angle.

The result was put beyond doubt when Reveillere combined with the impressive Marvin Martin before beating Saimir Ujkani at his near-post.

Bosnia & Herzegovina defeated Luxembourg 5-0 earlier on Friday.

Albania will look to end an unsuccessful qualifying campaign on a high with victory over Romania.
