Kylian Mbappe Apologizes After Missing Decisive Spot Kick Against Switzerland
France were knocked out of the ongoing Euro 2020 championships following a 5-4 victory for Switzerland after the tie was forced into extra-time as it ended 3-3, Sports Star reports.
Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappe missed the last and decisive spot-kick of the encounter to the uproar of Les Blues supporters.
He had a relatively poor competition and it was his penalty-miss that saw the world champion crash out of the European Championship in the last 16.
Mbappe said France was “incredibly sad” after exiting the tournament and that his miss would keep him awake at night. Mbappe wrote via Instagram:
“I’m sorry about this penalty. I wanted to help the team but I failed. It’s going to be hard to sleep after this, but unfortunately these are the ups and downs of this sport that I love so much. “The most important (thing) will be to get back up again even stronger for future commitments. Congratulations and good luck to the Swiss team.”
