Notes

* credit to BBC’s Steve Bauer, who used that line about Kylian Mbappe during the commentary tonight

“water carrier” – this is a French derogatory remark that takes its source from cycling.

Eric Cantona famously labelled Didier Deschamps as such, back in the day. The two were never best pals!
