After Kylian Mbappe’s World Cup final hat-trick, Barcelona couldn’t help but send a message
Barcelona tweeted about Kylian Mbappe before swiftly removing it after the 23-year-old scored a hat-trick in the World Cup final.
France appeared doomed after falling behind 2-0 with 10 minutes remaining, but a penalty from Mbappe in the 80th minute was immediately followed by a magnificent volley a minute later, forcing the game into extra time.
Mbappe completed his hat-trick three minutes from the end, with Argentina leading 3-2 in the second period of extra time.
Barcelona let off their guard by tweeting “Mbappe” with three exploding head emojis. However, their official social media account promptly erased the Tweet.
Mbappe is the first player since Sir Geoff Hirst of England in 1966 to score a hat-trick in a World Cup final.
However, the Frenchman would finally endure sadness after Barcelona’s former sensation Lionel Messi, who had scored twice in the game, guided his team-mates to a penalty shootout triumph.
