Ten months after the cruel failure of Les Bleus at the World Cup in Qatar, where Kylian Mbappé’s team lost out to Argentina on penalties in the final, the French national team suffered a terrible disappointment at their World Cup. Fabien Galthié’s men had hoped to lift the Webb-Ellis trophy in front of their home crowd at the Stade de France on October 28, but were beaten by South Africa in the quarter-finals by the narrowest of margins.

The disappointment was as great as the expectations placed in them by the French on this occasion. to beIN Sports.

And the former midfielder speaks from experience. After all, the penalty shoot-out defeat to Argentina was hard for the Bayonne native to digest. If you lose 2-0 or 3-0, you don’t have the same regrets, he confided after the defeat to the Albiceleste, adding: It’s really cruel. We put in a lot of energy, we had a match ball and to see victory slip from our grasp on penalties is terrible. This failure will be hard to forget, but it must help us for the future. These words were interpreted as a reference to the Euro 2016 final lost in extra time to Portugal, two years before Les Bleus were crowned champions in Qatar.
