The England striker missed a penalty in the 84th minute, wasting an equalizer against the Blues, victorious and qualified for the semi-finals of the 2022 World Cup this Saturday (1-2).

Mbappé's expressive joy, smiling from ear to ear, was broadcast during replays during the match.
It can be reviewed in the tweet of TF1 journalist Sébastien Barniaud below.
Mbappé's joy has both unified French supporters and given rise to many humorous tweets.
The star striker of the Blues found himself associated with other offbeat images, of people or characters with their mouths (very) wide open, a wide smile.
Mbappé is thus compared to a manga character, or to Bart and Lisa Simpson from the famous American cartoon.
Parody tweets that reinforce the lightness and deliverance of the Blues, victorious in the pain of a long tight quarter-final.
