Kylian Mbappe Produced An Absolutely Shocking Dive In France's Win Over Moldova
Kylian Mbappe scored his 11th goal for France last night but the 20-year old sensation's performance was overshadowed by an utterly appalling dive.
The Paris Saint-Germain No.7 was on target in a convincing 4-1 win for the world champions away at Moldova in the Euro 2020 qualifier, finding the net in the 87th minute with a clinical finish when played through one-on-one.
But he followed that up minutes later with one of the worst acts of simulation we've seen in a long time. Nabil Fekir slipped him in with a deft touch and Mbappe looked like he was about to bag his second when he rounded the goalkeeper.
However, realising he'd taken the ball too far, the former Monaco forward embarrassingly hurled himself to the floor despite no contact whatsoever.

He did his best to try and convince the referee he had been fouled but the man in the middle correctly brandished a yellow card for the dive.

Going back to that :flag_fr:-:flag_md: game, mbappe had a poor game but what I really didn't like that dive in the very end. That's embarrassing. There's absolutely no need for something like that. What's worse is that it's not the 1st time and he keeps doing this again and again.- alex_k (@ale_09_y) March 23, 2019

Mbappe deserves a red for that dive. E no even respect the intelligence of the ref :joy:- Laolu (@Gido_Otiko) March 22, 2019
It seems as though Mbappe has been spending far too much time with Neymar given his recent threatrics.
In his last game for PSG before the international break, in the 3-1 Le Classique win over Marseille, he went down like a sack of potatoes and it's really not a good luck for him.
Cut it out, Kylian.
