Fans are all saying the same thing as Mbappe chats to Lloris before Kane’s penalty in England’s clash against France
FOOTBALL fans were left baffled by Kylian Mbappe’s pep talk with Hugo Lloris ahead of Harry Kane’s penalty.
The France superstar chatted to his goalkeeper as Kane prepared to step up from 12 yards.

Fans felt Mbappe must have tried to offer his goalkeeper some last-minute advice, despite Lloris being Kane’s team-mate at Tottenham.
Lloris has played with Kane since 2012 and has likely spent many hours between the sticks in training as the England captain practised penalties.
So World Cup fans struggled to understand why Mbappe went over to Lloris before the spot-kick was taken.
One fan said: “Mbappé wants to give advice to Lloris who has been playing with Kane for 10 years he is MARBLED.”
Another added: “Nah why did Mbappe go up to Lloris to give him advice as if he doesn’t train with Kane everyday.”
And a third said: “Mbappe walking over to Lloris like Hugo doesn’t train with Kane day in day out. Move man.”
Mbappe decided not to speak to Lloris ahead of Kane’s second penalty.
But he was quick to congratulate the shot-stopper after Kane blazed his spot-kick over the bar.
