Speaking in a statement posted on social media, Kylian Mbappé apologised for missing the vital penalty against Switzerland that has resulted in France being knocked out of EURO 2020 at the Round of 16 stage.
“Very difficult to turn the page. The sadness is immense after this elimination, we were not able to achieve our objective. I am sorry for this penalty. I wanted to help the team but I failed. It will be hard to sleep but sadly these are the risks of this sport that I love so much. I know that you the fans are disappointed, but I would still like to thank you for your support and for having always believed in us. The most important thing will be to get up even stronger for the challenges to come. Congratulations and good luck to Switzerland.”
