Kylian Mbappe stayed onside to score the winner in the Nations League final

Kylian Mbappe fired a contentious winner as France came from behind to beat Spain and become the second team to win the Nations League.

Mbappe was adjudged to be onside when he slid the ball under Unai Simon after Karim Benzema’s stunning equaliser at Milan’s San Siro.

Spain had taken the lead through Mikel Oyarzabal, who shrugged off defender Dayot Upamecano to beat Hugo Lloris.

Lloris denied Oyarzabal late on to ensure victory for the world champions.

Portugal won the inaugural Nations League title in 2019.
