Nations League: Decide centimeters: Mbappé shoots France to the title

The world champion is back!

France wins 2-1 against Spain and takes the Nations League Cup. With Bayern’s Benjamin Pavard (25 / to 80.) and Dayot Upamecano (22 / from 43.) on the pitch.

104 days after the knockout round at the European Championships, the “Les Bleus” win a European title – thanks to Kylian Mbappé (22) and a Spain tackle.

The fans at Milan’s San Siro stadium were not spoiled until the 64th minute, when a bang from France’s Theo Hernández woke both teams.

▶ ︎ 64th minute: In the counterattack, Spain does it: Oyarzabal prevails against Upamecano and finished 1-0 after Busquets’ preparatory work.

▶ ︎ 66th minute: Mbappé serves Benzema, who circles the ball into the far corner – equalizer!

▶ ︎ 80th minute: Mbappé again – this time he scores himself. The French cheer. The scene is still being checked for offside. A tricky scene, but the goal counts. Because: The Frenchman was offside when he passed him, but the Spaniard Eric Garcia grabs in between and lightly touches the ball. That cancels the offside.

Didier Deschamps’ team (52) is only the second winner of the competition after Portugal and pocketed 4.5 million euros for the final victory.
