‘I Went To My Car And Cried’ – Patrice Evra Discloses His Emotional Reaction To France’s Defeat by Argentina In The 2022 World Cup Final



Manchester United legend and France’s ex-player, Patrice Evra, has disclosed that he cried in his car as a result of France’s loss to Argentina in the 2022 World Cup Final in Qatar.

The former French international was filled with emotions and experienced deep ‘pain’ after the loss, as Albiceleste won the highly priced trophy on penalties.

Four months after the loss, Evra spoke to RMC about the effect the result took on him.

‘I watched the match live, and I cried. I did not expect it. I tell you the truth, I went to my car and I cried.

‘For three days, I was in pain,’ the defender added. ‘And I said to myself, “Patrice, I know you love the France team”… but it hurt me so much.

‘And then, frankly, hats off to the France team,’ Evra finished, lauding Les Bleus’ achievement of reaching the final and challenging for a second consecutive World Cup.

The pundit went on to praise France’s star man in the final, Mbappe, whose performance was barely believable in the face of his team’s defeat.

‘You score a hat-trick, three goals in the final, and you don’t win the final,’ Evra said with disbelief. ‘You see, it was incredible!’

After Argentina’s strong first-half display, Evra added that he thought: ‘That’s it.’

The first half, he cited, was ‘c***.’
‘And then you come back, two by two – and then after you lose. There was too much emotion, too much emotion.’
