In the dying stages of the game, France and PSG forward Kylian Mbappe was clearly not happy with three goals and had the ball at the back of the net in the 89th minute.

The Frenchman appeared to have blatantly slapped the ball into the goal with his hand. The referee was not fooled and ended up booking Kylian Mbappe straight away.
