‘The next one is for us’: France fans reflect on their dramatic World Cup final defeat – video | Football

French fans were disappointed after Argentina but hopeful after the penalty shootout defeat to Argentina in the World Cup final. Lionel Messi scored twice in a 3-3 draw that featured a hat-trick for Kylian Mbappé. It was an incredible game of drama and fluctuating fortunes, delivering one of the all-time great finals. Argentina had looked to be cruising to a one-sided victory after Messi’s penalty and a brilliant goal by Ángel Di María in the first half put them in total control but Mbappé converted an 80th-minute penalty and volleyed in an equaliser a minute later to take the game to extra time. Fans thanked Mbappé as they commiserated and looked ahead to the future, saying ‘good luck to France, don’t let go, the next one is for us”
