Mikel Oyarzabal opened the scoring in the second half for Spain, but the lead did not last for two minutes as Karim Benzema scored a world-class goal to pull France level. With 10 minutes to go, Kylian Mbappe gave France the win as he scored a controversial goal which has divided opinions amongst fans as to whether the goal should have been cancelled for offside or not.
