Varane compares France’s Mbappe to Brazil icon Ronaldo

Adjust Comment Print

He may not be ready to challenge the likes of Messi and Ronaldo for individual honours just yet, but Kylian Mbappe is certainly one of the hottest prospects in World football. A year ago in March against Luxembourg, Mbappe made his senior worldwide debut for France in 2017.

Kylian Mbappe's favorite player is Cristiano Ronaldo.

His brace took his goal haul at the tournament up to three, after he became the youngest Frenchman ever to score at a World Cup by netting the victor against Peru in the group stages.

"Kylian has much more talent than I have", Pogba stated, as reported by "Goal".

Between April and May, the former Monaco forward followed a healing treatment, known as thalassotherapy, to regenerate his body before the World Cup. I am convinced that the match was prepared by either the coach [Didier Deschamps] or himself, that he knew Argentina would leave spaces - we saw it against Croatia. "We're here to play all seven matches, right up until the final, and we will see what happens".

Griezmann praised the collective strength of France during the Argentina game.

But defender Benjamin Pavard equalised with a thunderous strike to pull France level and once more change the complexion of the game.

The 19-year-old's second half double effectively sealed his side's progress to the quarter-finals and also made him the first teenager to score two goals in a finals match since the Brazilian great in 1958.

Mbappe has instincts, timing and touch, and he used them to destroy Argentina as much as he did with his speed. "Mbappé had an incredible evening; he really hurt us a lot".

"We do not want to go any further than that, because the bonus will only be paid if France reach the quarterfinals". I'm very happy that he's French! From there, Mbappe took over, with his two goals in four minutes.
