Yann Sommer saved Kylian Mbappe’s crucial spot-kick as France were knocked out by Switzerland in a dramatic shootout following a 3-3 draw on Monday.

After going a goal down early on and conceding a penalty, France managed to come back to make it 3-1 with 15 minutes of regulation time left in Bucharest.

A late Swiss fight-back saw Haris Seferovic net his second goal and Mario Gavranovic force extra time after canceling out Karim Benzema’s brace and Paul Pogba’s goal.

While both teams had chances in the extra 30 minutes, poor finishing led to penalties, where Mbappe’s disappointing tournament was summed up by his unsuccessful kick, with Sommer diving to his right to make the save that sent Switzerland through 5-4 in the shoot-out.
