The World Cup Champions Eliminated As Mbappe Misses A Penalty

The reigning world cup champions, France, played against Switzerland in the round of 16 Euro 2020. No one expected France to be eliminated out of the competition. The first half lead by the Switzerland men, saw France come into the second half of the game with Karim Benzema scoring two goals within three minutes. This made them lead far when Pogba, the Manchester United midfielder score a third goal for the french men.

Switzerland players composed themselves and came from behind and scored two goals making it 3:3 forcing the game to extra time. No player managed to find the scoring opportunity hence the penalties had to decide who was to go through to the next stage. The French men were let down by Kylian Mbappe who failed to score the penalty. This was when Mbappe's penalty was stopped by Switzerland keeper, Yann Sommer making it to be, France 4 Switzerland 5.

Kylian Mbappe has not scored any goal in this Euro 2020 which is a very bad result for him in this competition.

Switzerland will now face Spain in the quarter finals of this competition. Congratulations to Switzerland national players for their good job done.
