If you were wondering if, like you, Randal Kolo Muani often repeated his immense opportunity from the end of the end of the extension which could have offered the World Cup to France, a month and a half ago now, to see if the end could not this time be different, know that the answer is yes.

The young striker of the Blues returned in an interview with beIN Sports on his duel lost face to face with Emiliano Martinez, this volley of the right came to hit the tibia of the Argentine goalkeeper rather than passing between his legs.

“I still watch it, I know it by heart,” he says.

The Frankfurt striker, who scored against Bayern Munich last week, tries to put into words the thoughts that came to him when Konaté's ball came to him.

“In my head, I said to myself: 'There, Randal, you have to shoot'.

I tried to shoot at the near post, but the keeper made a very good save.

[…] He pulls it out well, and I lose this duel,” he said.

Before acknowledging that he could have played it differently:

“There were other solutions.

I can lob him, find Kylian [Mbappé, all alone on his left].

But, on the action, I do not see it.

It's afterwards, when you watch the video, that you see that there were other possibilities.

It's too late.

You can not do anything.


Kolo Muani knows that those few seconds will never fade.

“I still have it in my throat and I will have it for life, observes the former Nantes resident.

But it [the opportunity] doesn't hurt me, I tell myself that I have to go find this goal, that's what will push me to surpass myself.

That's all we wanted to hear, Randal.
