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
