Real Madrid midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni has admitted losing the World Cup final with France was tough to recover from.
Tchouameni missed a penalty kick, as France lost to Argentina on penalties, and the young midfielder has revealed just how that one incident has left him a big scar.
He said, “We had to digest the defeat, because it was a failure for myself and the team.
“The missed penalty was a huge blow, but going back to work with Real Madrid means you get back to doing something different quickly enough.”
“I think about it”, he continued, “I always will. It affected me.
“I’m trying to establish a routine, with different competent people in different areas, to take care of my body.”
