Belgium's Marouane Fellaini has the unenviable task of trying to stop France's Kylian Mbappe in this World Cup semifinal, and there have been moments where it hasn't gone great. One of those moments came early in the second half, when Mbappe made the what might be the filthiest pass we've seen all Cup to Olivier Giroud.
I know that he's only 19, and we bemoan the participation trophy generation, but can't we give France half a goal for that?
Twitter was understandably shook by the footwork, and was perhaps just as upset by the fact Thibaut Courtois saved the goal as it was in awe of the pass.
That's one of the passes most people don't even think about attempting, and definitely don't have the audacity to try. Perhaps this sums it up best:
Mbappe has had an incredible tournament to this point, and he's definitely been one of the breakout stars of the Cup. It's always cool seeing someone play so well at his age. When opportunities like this are missed, it's tough not to wonder how that pass would be remembered if Giroud had finished it. As it is, it's a great opportunity.
