Qatar 2022:’We’ll Be Back’ —Mbappe Vows After World Cup Final Loss To Argentina
Kylian Mbappe says France will be back after their defeat to Argentina in the World Cup final on Sunday in Qatar.
Mbappe bagged a hat-trick but it was not enough as Argentina won 4-2 on penalties after 120 minutes of football ended 3-3.
After Lionel Messi and Angel Di Maria put Argentina 2-0 up, Mbappe netted two quickfire goals, his first being from the spot, to send the game to extra-time.
Messi then put Argentina 3-2, only for Mbappe to score his second penalty, and third of the match, with two minutes left of extra-time.
While Mbappe scored his penalty in the shootout, his third spot-kick of the game, Kingsley Coman and Aurelien Tchouameni missed for Les Bleus.
It meant France missed out on the chance to become the third team in history to win back-to-back World Cups.
After the disappointing defeat Mbappe took to social media on Monday, posting a picture of himself walking past the trophy while holding the Golden Boot alongside a defiant two-word message in French: “Nous reviendrons.” which translates in English to: “We’ll be back.”
His post was liked over four million times on Instagram within an hour of being uploaded.
The Paris Saint-Germain forward will still only be 27-years-old by the time of the next World Cup.
