Kylian Mbappe’s brother mobbed in stands as France star misses crucial penalty

Kylian Mbappe's little brother Ethan was spotted taking a selfie with a supporter during France's Euro 2020 last 16 clash against Switzerland on Monday – ahead of their untimely exit.

Ethan, who signed a new youth contract with PSG last week, was in the stands for the crunch encounter which was expected to be a comfortable victory for the 2018 World Cup winners.

It didn't turn out to be so simple, with Switzerland taking the lead, and then forcing penalties, having been 3-1 down after Paul Pogba's stunner deep into the second half.

One star who had a game to forget was indeed Kylian, who missed chances to put the game to bed before seeing his crucial fifth penalty saved by the inspired Yann Sommer.

As those events unfolded, Ethan, 15, was seen taking a selfie with a female fan, having hit the headlines with his 2024 contract extension on Sunday.

Ethan posted: "I am very proud to continue with my team, PSG."

With the club adding of the youngster and his colleague Senny Mayulu: "Born in 2006, these promising young talents had previously been within the youth squads of Paris Saint-Germain.

"They are now linked to the capital club for three seasons (2021-22, 2022-23 and 2023-24). The club wish them every success in the jersey of Paris Saint-Germain."

While Switzerland booked their quarter-final spot against Spain, the elder Mbappe issued an apology to fans while promising that they will bounce back stronger.

"The sadness is immense after this elimination, we could not reach our goal," he wrote.

"I'm sorry for this penalty. I wanted to help the team but failed. Getting to sleep will be difficult but unfortunately it is the ups and downs of this sport that I love so much.

"I know you fans have been disappointed, but I still want to thank you for your support and for always believing in us.

"The most important thing will be to get up even stronger for the next upcoming deadlines.

"Congratulations and good luck to Switzerland."
