France took the lead against Spain in the Nations League final through Kylian Mbappe.
Mbappe had his fair share of flak after Euro 2020 after he missed the decisive penalty in the penalty shoot-out against Switzerland.
The Frenchman took the lead in the Nations League semi-finals to take a pressure penalty against Belgium and made no mistake from 12 yards.
The PSG superstar has delivered again for Les Bleus, crossed the Spanish defensive line and defeated goalkeeper Unai Simon.
? GOAL IS SET?
Could that be the winner? Kylian Mbappe finds the goal for France less than ten minutes before the end of the game – and it’s still under a VAR review!
?? Spain 1-2 France ??

There was never any doubt about the quality of Mbappe, but this summer he faced the biggest mental challenge of his football career so far.
After overcoming winning the Nations League for the world champion, it’s safe to say that Mbappe passed the test with flying colors.
To say that France would be better without him is utter nonsense. He’s one of the best players in the world – and there is always room for one on your team.
