Patrice Evra shares his heartfelt response to France’s penalty shootout loss against Argentina in the World Cup final… and admits he experienced emotional discomfort for a duration of three days.

Patrice Evra, a revered figure in Manchester United’s history, shared that he shed tears while sitting in his car after France’s loss to Argentina in December’s World Cup Final in Qatar.

The former French international, who earned 81 caps for Les Bleus during his illustrious career, was overwhelmed by emotions and experienced profound ‘discomfort’ following the defeat.

Didier Deschamps’ team managed to recover from a lackluster first half performance, equalizing against Lionel Messi-led Argentina and forcing the match into extra time.

Both Messi and the newly appointed France captain Kylian Mbappe scored during the additional 30 minutes before the Albiceleste secured the trophy through a penalty shootout.

Approximately four months later, Evra candidly discussed with RMC the impact the result had on him.

France’s exceptional player, Kylian Mbappe, was deeply moved following the final whistle.

“I watched the match live, and it brought tears to my eyes. It caught me off guard.

“To be honest, I went to my car and couldn’t help but cry.

“For three days, I carried a heavy heart,” expressed the defender. “I told myself, ‘Patrice, I know how much you love the France team’… but it pained me tremendously.

“Nevertheless, I must give credit to the France team,” Evra continued, praising Les Bleus’ remarkable achievement in reaching the final and contending for a consecutive World Cup.

Evra went on to commend France’s standout performer in the final, Mbappe, whose outstanding performance was hard to fathom given his team’s defeat.

“Scoring a hat-trick, three goals in the final, and still not winning… it’s truly unbelievable!” exclaimed Evra.

Reflecting on Argentina’s strong performance in the first half, Evra acknowledged, “I thought it was over.”

He further described the first half as disappointing, but then the team made a remarkable comeback to level the score, only to eventually suffer defeat. The emotional rollercoaster was overwhelming.
