France-Switzerland (3-3, 4-5 at the tabs): relive the shootout session, strike by strike

It was the first time in fifteen years and his defeat in the World Cup final (1-1, 3-5 tab) that the Blues were playing a penalty shootout. And she lost again this Monday evening at the end of this exercise, in the round of 16 of Euro 2021 against Switzerland. This time, it is not David Trezeguet but Kylian Mbappé who has taken on the appalling role of the shooter at fault. The prodigy of Bondy comes out of his Euro without scoring once and missing his shot on goal.

All the credit goes to the Swiss, authors of a fantastic comeback, then heroic to resist in overtime (3-3, 4-5 tab), before Yann Sommer offers the qualification to his people around 11:45 pm.

The course of this session

1-0 for Switzerland. Number 19 Gavranovic scores with a powerful strike under the bar on the left. Lloris had gone to the other side.

1-1. Pogba scores in the same way, a counter-foot and a shot even more powerful and placed in the top corner.

2-1 for Switzerland. Without momentum, Fabian Schär deceives Hugo Lloris with the flat of the right foot halfway up on the right.

2-2. Olivier Giroud realizes a new cross-footing with his left foot.

3-2 for Switzerland. Akanji transforms his with an uneducated strike low to the ground.

3-3. Marcus Thuram also scores on the left side halfway up. Sommer had started on the right side this time.

4-3 for Switzerland. Ruben Vargas gives the advantage back to Switzerland. Lloris touches the ball, but cannot get it out of the frame halfway up on his right. The Frenchman did not dive and therefore finds himself too short to deviate sufficiently.

4-4. Presnel Kimpembe traps Yann Sommer, still on the right side, with a cross shot in the skylight.

5-4 for Switzerland. Mehmedi also scores. A strike on the ground that deceives Hugo Lloris on the wrong foot. France then no longer has the right to make mistakes.

5-4. Mbappé eliminates France. His strike halfway up the right foot is not placed enough on the left side and ends in the arms of Sommer, who pushes back without even diving. This is the first and therefore the only failure of this session. The Blues leave the Euro in the round of 16.
