France star Kingsley Coman has admitted that he was so nervous about Harry Kane’s second penalty kick late in the quarter-final on Saturday night that he “had the wi***es”. England were knocked out of the World Cup after a heartbreaking defeat to France on Saturday evening despite a strong performance from Gareth Southgate’s side.

Kane had equalised from the spot early in the second half after Aurelien Tchouameni fouled Bukayo Saka inside the box. France restored their one-goal lead in the 78th minute as Olivier Giroud popped up for his fourth goal of the World Cup.

But England were given a golden chance to draw level from the spot once again moments later when Theo Hernandez bundled over Mason Mount in the box. Kane was given the responsibility once again to try and get England back in the match.

However, the Tottenham star skied his effort over the bar and England were unable to find that elusive second goal. Kylian Mbappe was seen laughing after Kane’s miss, but Coman clearly felt differently when the 29-year-old stepped up for his penalty.

“I had the wi***es on Kane’s penalty,” Coman said. “On the bench, we are always afraid, as on the penalty… but we have really the feeling of being all ready to fight for each other.

“Even on the bench, we try to give energy to the starters. We really shouted, helped as much as possible.” He added: “There was a crazy intensity, I tried to fight on all the balls even if I didn’t have many.

“In the end, I was at fault and I was very scared.” France are now strong favourites to make the final as they face surprise package Morocco in the next round.

But Coman insists France won’t take the tie too lightly given Morocco have beaten the likes of Belgium, Spain and Portugal already. “We remain focused on the field, there is still a half against a Moroccan team which has been very good so far,” he said.

“We will have to put all our energy for victory. They had a great run, coming out of a big group. They deserve to be there, we will work well tactically.”
