After regulation time and extra time, the score was 3-3. The penalty shootout ended in 5-4. Swiss goalkeeper Yann Sommer, invariably called ‘bonsai keeper’ by NOS commentator Jeroen Grueter because of his short height, managed to keep the penalty kick of French star player Kylian Mbappé out of the net. Switzerland thus sent world champion France home. Mbappe apologized on Instagram for his mistake.
