The reason is not the offside, clamorous and that by itself would have annulled the goal, but the touch of Eric García which enables the position of Mbappé in an unfair rule that made the striker wanted by Real Madrid go from being offside to his place on the field being legal. Eric goes for the ball and touches it because he knows of the presence of Kylian… that he was offside.
The end of the story is that of the resignation of Spain after an outstanding match against a team with Benzema, Mbappé, Pogba … or Lloris. The national team, despite its theoretical inferiority in terms of stars, had to activate the best version of the French goalkeeper and captain until the last minute of a match that will go down in history due to the unfairness of a rule that took away from Spain the possibility of conquering his first League of Nations.
