Now the Frankfurt attacker reveals it is a miss he won’t ever forget.

"I still watch it, I know it off by heart. In my head, I said to myself: 'Randal, you have to shoot now'. I tried to shoot towards the near post but the goalkeeper made a very good save. But there were other options,"

Muani said to beIN Sports.

"I could have lobbed him, or find Kylian Mbappe [to the left]. But in the moment, I didn't see him. It's only when you watch back that you discover the other options. It's too late. It still sticks in my throat and it'll be there for life."

The 24-year-old has been on excellent form for

Eintracht Frankfurt
