Antoine Griezmann has missed his last two penalties for France after scoring his first seven

Antoine Griezmann missed his second penalty in four days but France still beat Andorra in Euro 2020 qualifying.

Kingsley Coman rounded goalkeeper Josep Gomes to give Les Bleus the lead, but Gomes then denied Griezmann from the spot.

Griezmann crossed for Barcelona team-mate Clement Lenglet to head home his first international goal.

And Wissam Ben Yedder added a late third from a rebound after Gomes saved Nabil Fekir’s effort.

Griezmann hit the crossbar with a spot-kick in the 4-1 win over Albania on Saturday.

Iceland are three points behind the pair after losing 4-2 in Albania, who are six points below the two automatic spots.
