French forward Kylian Mbappé apologized for missing the decisive shot in Monday’s 5-4 loss to Switzerland in which the world champions crashed in the European Championship in the round of 16.
Switzerland scored two goals in the final 10 minutes in a thrilling 3-3 draw and, after a goalless overtime, prevailed on penalties after goalkeeper Yann Sommer attacked Mbappé.
Mbappe said France was “incredibly sad” after exiting the tournament and that his failure would keep him awake at night.

“I’m sorry for this shame. I wanted to help the team but failed, ”Mbappé wrote on Instagram.
“It’s going to be hard to sleep after this, but unfortunately these are the ups and downs of this sport that I love so much.
“The most important thing will be to get back up even stronger for future commitments. Congratulations and good luck to the Swiss team. “
