Mbappe’s winner takes France to Nations League title

Kylian Mbappe fired France to Nations League glory on Sunday after netting the winner which completed a comeback from a goal down to beat Spain 2-1 in Milan, reports AFP. Mbappe struck with 10 minutes remaining to win the

title for world champions France after Karim Benzema had levelled just two minutes after Mikel Oyarzabal put Spain into a 64th-minute lead. The win will ease some of the pain created by an early exit from Euro 2020 at the hands of Switzerland and highlighted just how powerful France are going forward. Les Bleus came out on top of a match at the San Siro which came to life after Oyarzabal slid home the opener.
