World knockout ” for La Roja!
In Spain, what makes the headlines is necessarily the defeat on penalties against the Morocco !
Mundo Deportivo evokes a “ World knockout” to designate this disillusionment for La Roja. It must be said that this is the 3rd World Cup in a row where Spain does not pass the round of 16, the last time was simply in 2010, when the Iberian selection finished world champion. Sportsalso looks stunned and conjures up a “ sledgehammer” with this surprise defeat. Because even if she dominated the meeting she never managed to score, not even during the penalty shootout. Precisely for Marca, this World Cup was “ too big” for the real level of La Roja… “End stop”, summarizes soberly AS , which gives a little info about the Iberian coach. “ The Federation doubts that Luis Enrique should continue“says the daily. “

In England, the tabloids evoke another big subject, Kylian Mbappé. And it is precisely him that we find on the front page of the
Daily Star, with a daring title: “ License to Kyl which means “ license to kill“, but with a pun on Kylian's first name. Because he is the target of the English for this shock in anticipation. The selection of Gareth Southgate is preparing a plan against the French genius, after “ two years of espionage”, explains the tabloid. This is also reported by the Daily Mirror which goes into a little more detail. In fact, the Three Lions are going to treat him like they would Lionel Messi. The coach's assistant, Steve Holland, intends to block Mbappé as he did for La Pulga when he was at Chelsea, in the semi-finals of the Champions League in 2012. Even if, as the daily notes, Mbappé was absent from training yesterday. This is also what makes the cover of the Daily Express, which evokes this absence of the striker from the France team. According to several French media, Mbappé was just in the recovery phase and there would be no worries about his presence for the duel against England.
