After France’s defeat to Argentina in the World Cup final, Patrice Evra, who played 59 games for France, confessed that it was a very emotional moment for him. Evra was so devastated that he cried in his car after the match, which France lost on penalties after coming back from a 2-0 deficit.
Evra cried in his car after the final
“I watched the match live and I cried. I did not expect it. France-Argentina, I tell you the truth, I went to my car and I cried.” Evra said in an interview with RMC. “For three days I was in pain. And I said to myself ‘Patrice, I know you love the France team’… but it hurt me so much. And then, frankly, hats off to the France team.”
The 41-year-old also sympathised with France star Mbappe: “Kylian scores a hat-trick. You score a hat-trick, three goals in the final and you don’t win the final. You see it was incredible!”
In a memorable World Cup final, France was defeated by Argentina in a penalty shootout. Despite Kylian Mbappe’s impressive performance with a hat-trick and scoring his penalty in the shootout, France was unable to overcome Argentina led by Lionel Messi.
France began their qualification campaign for Euro 2024 with back-to-back victories. However, they are scheduled to resume their campaign in June, seeking to secure a place in next year’s tournament.
