The French have already sealed their spot for in summer’s tournament by topping Group B, but showed their ruthless streak by scoring seven first half goals from seven different scorers, adding another seven in the second 45 minutes.
It took just three minutes for Deschamps’ side to open the scoring, as Gibraltar defender Ethan Santos put the ball into his own net to give the hosts the perfect start.
A minute later Marcus Thuram doubled their lead before a moment of French football history was made by debutant Warren Zaire-Emery.
In starting the game the PSG teenager became the youngest post-war international for France, and it took him just 16 minutes to become the nation’s youngest-ever goal-scorer, too.
Unfortunately his night would end early as he suffered an injury whilst scoring his history-making goal and was forced off after just 20 minutes.
Undeterred, France made it 4-0 from the penalty spot when Kylian Mbappe slotted home, while things went from bad to worse for the away side as the unfortunate Santos was then shown a red card.
Three goals in four first half minutes then saw France run riot on Gibraltar, with Johnathan Clauss, Kingsley Coman and substitute Youssouf Fofana netting before the break.
The blood-letting continued in the second-half with Gibraltar unable to stem the tide.
The Iberican minnows held off the former World Cup winners for less than 20 minutes after the interval, before Adrien Rabiot netted in the 63rd minute.
Two minutes later, Coman netted his second, before captain Mbappe netted two to more to complete his hat-trick, and Olivier Giroud arrived at the party late with two goals in the space of two minutes.
France’s all-time record goal-scored bagged his first just one minute before normal time, and barely pausing for breadth, the AC Milan striker doubled his tally in the first minute of injury-time.
