Kylian Mbappe, a World Cup winner, dreamed of becoming the champion of Europe but called Euro 2024 a “failure” after France lost to Spain in the semi-finals.

After a high-profile move to Real Madrid, Mbappe struggled to shine, scoring only one penalty in the tournament. Despite his past World Cup successes, he couldn’t make the same impact in the Euros.

Mbappe’s performance in Euros has been underwhelming compared to his World Cup stats. He missed a key shot against Spain and created only a few chances.

His tournament was further hampered by a broken nose, forcing him to wear a mask that affected his game.

France’s coach, Didier Deschamps, acknowledged the mask issue but didn’t blame Mbappe solely for the loss. Now, Mbappe is set to rest and then focus on winning the Champions League with Real Madrid.
