Spain captain Sergio Busquets has claimed that Kylian Mbappe winning goal in their 2-1 loss to France should have been canceled as the player was in an offside position.
The PSG superstar appeared to be offside from Theo Hernandez’s assist, despite a deflected touch from Eric Garcia something that had Basquests frustrated.
“The second goal seemed offside to me. We pulled up the defensive line really well. I think Mbappe was offside. However, we need to make another small step to win major titles”, Basquests claimed as reported by Cadena COPE.
After a goalless first half, Spain were to take the lead through Mikel Oyarzabal minutes past the hour mark but Karim Benzema restored parity with a sumptuous goal four minutes later before Mabppe came with the winner ten minutes from time.
Both sides had chances to win it late on in Milan, after an outstanding quickfire double from Mikel Oyarzabal and Karim Benzema, but France seized the initiative.
