Kylian Mbappé after Spain-France: “I had the ambition to be European champion and to have a good Euro, I did neither”

Kylian Mbappé after France’s defeat against Spain (1-2)): “I don’t know if he missed a lot of things but he missed enough not to go to the final. They played better than us so they deserved to go to the final.

Il (Didier Deschamps, after the match) said that you shouldn’t give up, that you had to keep going, that football wasn’t a long, quiet river and that it was the vagaries of football: sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. I had the ambition to be European champion, I had the ambition to have a good Euro, I didn’t do either. It’s a disappointment, you have to go on holiday. I’m going to rest well, I think I need it to come back fresh when we resume and do a big preparation.

(Were the Blues stunned by the two Spanish goals?) I don’t know, we opened the scoring, we told ourselves that we were doing the hardest thing but maybe unconsciously we backed down a bit more. We put in less panache, less punch and we conceded two goals in quick succession. Afterwards, we tried to get the machine going again but it wasn’t enough. The result is what it is and that means we didn’t do enough to get to the final.

I think I have to score (on his missed opportunity at the end of the match)at least frame. It goes above and beyond and that’s the harsh reality of football. The mask? I was fed up with it, I couldn’t see well with it. I spoke to the doctor to see and he told me to make the decision like a man and I don’t regret it.
