The 24-year-old became the second footballer from France to find the net in the last three UEFA Champions League deciders – Karim Benzema having opened the scoring in Real Madrid's 2018 triumph – and the first Frenchman to score the winner in the match since Zinédine Zidane's iconic volley, also for Madrid, in 2002.
