Kylian Mbappe netted a hat trick but the Paris Saint-Germain superstar’s individual efforts were not enough to get his country over the finishing line.

Following a dramatic penalty shootout, Argentina ran out 4-2 winners with successful spot kicks converted by Messi, Paulo Dybala, Leandro Paredes and Gonzalo Montiel.

Although France’s Randal Kolo Muani and Mbappe scored their penalties, Aurelien Tchouameni and Kingsley Coman missed theirs which meant Montiel was tasked with winning it for Argentina, and he did not disappoint.
