The first comment from Mbappe after missing the decisive penalty
France striker Kylian Mbappe has apologized for missing a crucial penalty kick that knocked out the European Championship 2020. Switzerland scored two goals in the last ten minutes of the match that brought the two teams together, to snatch a 3-3 draw. The result did not change in extra time, before goalkeeper Ian Sommer saved the last penalty kick from Mbappe, as Switzerland won the penalty shootout 4-5. Commenting on the defeat, Mbappe said France was “very sad” after exiting the European Championship, and that missing a kick would keep him awake through the night. “I apologize for this kick,” Mbappe wrote on Instagram. “I wanted to help the team, but I failed.” “It will be difficult for me to sleep after that, but unfortunately these are the ups and downs of this sport that I love so much.” “The most important thing is that we come back stronger for future commitments. I congratulate the Swiss team and wish them all the best,” he added. Switzerland will play Spain, who defeated Croatia 5-3, in the quarter-finals next Friday.
