Fans doesn’t like Kylian Mbappe’s reaction to Harry Kane 85th-minute penalty miss as it’s going viral.
In Saturday’s World Cup quarterfinal between France and England, Kylian Mbappe’s response after Harry Kane missed a penalty in the 85th minute has gone viral.
Prior to their match against the defending world champions France, Gareth Southgate’s team defeated Iran, Wales, and Senegal, but the Three Lions were heartbreakingly eliminated from this winter’s competition.
In order to give the defending world champions a justifiable lead, Aurelien Tchouameni scored his first goal in a competitive game for France.
The 22-year-old midfielder collided with Bukayo Saka early in the second half, and referee Wilton Sampaio immediately pointed to the spot, turning Tchouameni from hero to zero.
Harry Kane scored from 12 yards to tie the scores, as he has often times throughout the years.
Bukayo Saka and Phil Foden, who operated from attacking positions, helped England quickly gain control of the game.
Olivier Giroud, France’s all-time leading scorer, gave Les Bleus the lead with 77 minutes remaining by headed past a hapless Jordan Pickford.
It was difficult for England to accept since they consistently looked dangerous in the second half.
Even so, seven minutes after Giroud’s goal, Theo Hernandez foolishly collided with Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount, resulting in another penalty.
The co-leading scorer for England, Kane, stepped up to take the penalty kick but, surprisingly, ballooned his effort beyond the crossbar.
Cameras moved to an indifferent Kylian Mbappe a few seconds later as he responded by ruthlessly laughing at the failed penalty. Below, you can observe that response.

England’s ability to deal with the French forward was always going to play a factor in Saturday’s clash, but Kyle Walker was confident ahead of kick-off.
“I understand what I need to do and that is to stop him,” Walker said. “It’s easier said than done but I don’t underestimate myself.
“He is a fantastic player in great form. It is not going to be an easy task, but as a professional footballer you want to play against the best and I think he is one of the best, if not the best, in the world at the moment.”
However, Mbappe emerged victorious as France advanced to next Wednesday’s semifinal.
Morocco, a surprise opponent, will take on Didier Deschamps’ team at the Al Bayt Stadium in Al Khor. Can they successfully defend their World Cup title?
