France Win Euros Knockout Tie as Mbappe Shines Despite Mask

Recommended Posts

France booked their place in the quarter-finals of Euro 2024 with a narrow 1-0 victory over Belgium in a tense and closely fought encounter. The world champions were far from their best, but they did enough to see off a spirited Belgium side who will be rueing their missed chances.

Kylian Mbappe scored the only goal of the game with a late header, just as it seemed that the match was heading for extra time. The France forward was wearing a protective mask after sustaining a facial injury in his country's final group stage match against Portugal, but he showed no signs of discomfort as he rose to power home Antoine Griezmann's cross.

Mbappe's goal was his fourth of the tournament, and he is now the top scorer at Euro 2024. However, he was not at his best in the match, and he often struggled to get into the game. He was also guilty of missing a number of chances, including a one-on-one with Belgium goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois in the first half.

Despite Mbappe's struggles, France were able to secure victory thanks to a solid defensive performance and a touch of luck. Belgium hit the crossbar twice in the second half, and they also had a strong penalty appeal turned down.

France will now face England in the quarter-finals, in what is a repeat of the 2016 final. The two teams have a long history of rivalry, and this is sure to be a closely contested match.
