Latest Football Results: On Sunday, Kylian Mbappe scored the game-winning goal in a 2-1 victory over Spain in Milan, capping a remarkable comeback from a goal down. Mbappe scored with 10 minutes left to give France the championship after Karim Benzema had equalised only two minutes after Mikel Oyarzabal had put Spain ahead in the 64th minute. The victory will take some of the sting out of France's early elimination from Euro 2020 at the hands of Switzerland, and it will demonstrate how strong France is moving forward. "I genuinely wanted to win a trophy with France, and now it's done," Benzema stated after returning to M6 ahead of the Euro.
"We showed the strength of character because this team is very strong, never gives up and we have proven it today.
"It is the sign of a great team not to panic, to be patient and to wait for the right opportunity."
Les Bleus won a contest at the San Siro that sprang to life when Oyarzabal scored the opening goal.
France had more chances to score via Mbappe before a frenetic conclusion in which Spain launched an onslaught on the French goal, in addition to the two goals from their superstar attackers. Hugo Lloris can thank Didier Deschamps for keeping the game from going to extra time as the France captain made a brilliant stoppage time save to prevent Yeremi Pino from a late equaliser.
Italy had previously finished third after defeating Belgium 2-1 in Turin, thanks to goals from Nicolo Barella and Domenico Berardi.

With five minutes left on the clock, France should have been ahead when Benzema was sent through wonderfully by Paul Pogba. The Real Madrid attacker attempted to move around Spain goalkeeper Unai Simon but went too wide and ended up sending an aimless low ball across the goal, which Cesar Azpilicueta easily cut out.
Two minutes later a lightning passing move led to Aymeric Laporte, playing against the country of his birth for the first time since obtaining Spanish nationality, cutting out a low cross.
In the first half, there was little in the way of goalmouth action as Spain fought off France's onslaught by maintaining a stranglehold on possession (64 percent in the first half).
In the 63rd minute, a beautiful French passing play begun by Benjamin Pavard concluded with Theo Hernandez slamming a first-time strike against the crossbar, igniting an otherwise stalemate.
Spain seized the lead just seconds later through Oyarzabal, who stroked in a pinpoint left-foot finish to the delight of the Spanish fans gathered behind the goal.
However, with 10 minutes remaining, the Paris Saint-Germain striker outfoxed Simon with some exquisite footwork before slotting home after being released free by Theo Hernandez.
In the 90th minute, Lloris palmed away an Oyarzabal volley and then got his hands on Pino's effort to guarantee the title went to Paris.
