The reason why Kylian Mbappe's goal was not an offside

The grand finale between France and Spain was played yesterday and Kylian Mbappe scored the winning for France. Italy and Belgium also played the 3rd and 4th position and Italy scored Belgium. France is 1st, Spain second, Italy 3rd and Belgium 4th. This is how the national league ended but Spain's national team was not happy with the Var decision on Mbappe's goal and they think is offside.

The referee went to check the goal and they said is not offside. They said Eric Garcia touched the ball before it reach Kylian Mbappe that makes him onside. Eric Garcia touching the before it reaches Kylian Mbappe makes him onside and this is why the goal was accepted. A lot of Spain players didn't even understand what the referee said because they think Eric Garcia touching the ball doesn't make Kylian Mbappe onside. They were angry with the VAR decision but they continue to play and it ended 1-2.

What Eric Garcia said after the match was that"Mbappe was offside but the referee told me that I tried to play the ball. What should I do? Step aside and let him run? Apparently, this is the rule".After that Spain Captain, Sergio Bosquet also said that this rule has to change. He won the best player in the tournament and the top scorer was Kylian Mbappe.
