Manchester United legend Patrice Evra shared that he was brought to tears in his car after France’s loss to Lionel Messi’s Argentina in the World Cup Final in Qatar last December. The former French international, who earned 81 caps for Les Bleus during his illustrious career, was overwhelmed with emotions and felt deep ‘pain’ following the defeat.

Didier Deschamps’ team managed to overcome a lacklustre first half to equalize with Lionel Messi’s Argentina, forcing the match into extra time. Both Lionel Messi and the new France captain Kylian Mbappe, currently playing for Paris Saint Germain, scored during the additional 30 minutes, but ultimately, the Albiceleste clinched the trophy on penalties. Four months later, Evra opened up to RMC about the emotional impact the result had on him.

‘For three days, I was in pain,’ the defender continued. ‘I thought to myself, “Patrice, I know you love the French team,”… but it hurt so much.’

‘And then, truly, hats off to the French team.’

‘Scoring a hat-trick, three goals in the final, and still not winning the final,’ Evra expressed in disbelief. ‘It was just incredible!’

Following the match, Mbappe appeared dejected, incapable of mustering a smile even while receiving the tournament’s Golden Boot. On the other hand, Messi’s triumph in the tournament filled a notable gap in his illustrious list of achievements. His happiness was evident as he celebrated with his teammates, hoisting the trophy and expressing his gratitude to fans and his family.
