The France team won (1-0) against Germany for their opening match of the Euro. But the Blues did not manage to take shelter at the end of the match. However, Kylian Mbappé certainly thought he could offer a penalty to his team, mown in the penalty area by Mats Hummels, after having taken speed.
The acceleration of Kylian Mbappé certainly brought back memories to the supporters of the France team. During the 2018 World Cup, a sprint of the PSG striker against Argentina ended in the penalty area, where he had obtained the penalty, mown by Marcos Rojo. This time, against Germany for the first match of the Euro, the 22-year-old has been tackled by Mats Hummels. But he didn’t get the penalty.
Hummels still in trouble
At real speed, the fault seemed clear. Caught up in speed, Mats Hummels never touched the ball and took Kylian Mbappé’s leg. However, the referee of the meeting did not whistle the penalty for the France team. A very contentious decision, which could have cost a lot to the Blues, who finally won (1-0).
During the first period (20th), Mats Hummels had pushed the ball into his own net under the pressure of Kylian Mbappé and the center in force from Lucas Hernandez. The Borussia Dortmund defender could have been at fault a second time in this game, leading to a goal for the opposing team.
A few minutes later, the France team still thought they could double the stake thanks to an achievement by Karim Benzema (85th), on a service from Kylian Mbappé. But an offside position was whistled, putting the Blues under pressure for the end of the match. But Didier Deschamps’ players were able to resist to afford a precious victory.
