According to a tweet by popular Italian Journalist Fabrizio Romano, Mbappe spoke about his performances at the Euros after the match against La Roja at the Allianz Arena in Germany.

"In football, you're good or not good. I wasn't good," he said.
"My Euro was a failure. I wanted to be the European champion. I will now go on holiday; I will rest well, it will do me a lot of good, and then I will get ready to start a new life. There's a lot to do."

According to BBC Sports, the French international scored just one goal in five appearances at the Euro 2024.
