Mbappe Reveals What He Told Messi After World Cup Defeat
France striker, Kylian Mbappe, has revealed what he told Argentina’s captain, Lionel Messi, after his side’s 2022 FIFA World Cup final defeat on December 18 in Qatar.
Mbappe scored a hat-trick against Messi-led Argentina in the World Cup final a few days ago, but his three goals were not enough as Argentina defeated France 4-2 on a penalty shoot-out following a 3-3 draw after 120 minutes.
After the match, Mbappe was seen talking to Messi on the pitch at the Lusail Stadium.
Speaking after PSG defeated Strasbourg 2-1 in a French Ligue 1 tie on Wednesday, Mbappe revealed that he congratulated club teammate Messi after Argentina’s World Cup triumph.
“I spoke with Messi after the game, I congratulated him,” Mbappe said, according to TyC Sports.
“It was important for him, for me too, but I lost, and you have to show maturity to congratulate the other team.” Follow us on Instagram @sofovilla | Follow us on Twitter @sofovilla | Like our page on Facebook via @sofovillamedia
