Kylian Mbappe: My Euro was a failure

Kylian Mbappe

France captain Kylian Mbappe has made an honest confession about his performance at the Euro 2024 following France’s disappointing exit.

Les Bleus’ journey came to an end with a 2-1 defeat to Spain in the semi-finals on Tuesday.

The former Paris Saint-Germain forward was unable to lead the French national team to the final after two quick-fire goals from Lamine Yamal and Dani Olmo overturned Randall Kolo Muani’s opening goal for Les Bleus.

Mbappe offered a candid assessment of his performances at the Euros after the match against Spain.

“In football, you’re good or not good. I wasn’t good,” he said.

“My Euro was a failure. I wanted to be the European champion. I will now go on holiday; I will rest well, it will do me a lot of good, and then I will get ready to start a new life. There’s a lot to do”.

The French international scored just one goal in five appearances at the Euro 2024, which came from a spot kick against Poland in the group stages.

Mbappe’s drought in front of goal largely describes the goal scoring form of the French team at the competition having failed to score from open play before the semi-final clash.

The defeat to Spain marks the end of the road for Les Blues’ campaign in Germany.
Since the European Football Championships do not feature a third-place playoff.
