France team: Mbapp, more than ever on a mission
The French side’s main attacking arm in Karim Benzema’s absence, Kylian Mbapp started the competition to perfection. But the Paris Saint-Germain striker wants more. A mission for the collective and individual titles he should start against Tunisia.
Mbapp makes a great start to the World Cup for the Blues.
If we ignore the League of Nations, Kylian Mbapp’s last appearance in a major international competition rhymed with failure. It was the Arena Nationala in Bucharest, Romania, where the Blues sadly said goodbye to Euro 2021 after a defeat against Switzerland (3-3, 4-5 tabs) and a last shot on goal missed by Bondy’s crack.
A tournament he completed with… zero goals scored. But a year later, Kyk corrected the situation at the start of the World Cup.
Fontaine’s record in the crosshairs?
Three goals and a decisive assist in two games against Australia (4-1) and Denmark (2-1), who says it better? Nobody. at just 23, Mbapp has already surpassed Jean-Pierre Papin and Just Fontaine, and joins Zinedine Zidane in the French team’s top scorer (31 goals). And he too became the second architect of the Azzurri at the World Cup with seven players in two editions, behind Fontaine and his incredible record (13 goals in the 1958 edition).
Like all world records, Mbapp probably has that of his illustrious year in mind. And that’s why he wants to go ahead against Tunisia on Wednesday (16:00). According to The Squad, the Blues staff don’t want to break the momentum of the Parisian striker. Even with the competition’s top scorer title in his sights, it should therefore be established again by Didier Deschamps – again according to the sports daily – before setting off probably on the half-hour mark.
Probably starting against Tunisia
On a mission, definitely. And of course he doesn’t want to be disturbed while he leads her well. According to regional newspaper Le Parisien, Mbapp has decided to practice radio silence in Qatar. He decided to focus only on the competition and the game, and not to comment on any aspect, bad choices like good ones, the choice of Qatar as host country as his status as the Blues’ second top scorer in Globalwe can read in LP.
Twice elected man of the match by Fifa, the native of Paris, for example, did not appear before the press, as required by the institution’s regulations, and therefore risks sanctions. It doesn’t matter: Mbapp is aware that his presence in the media sometimes prevents him from being on the pitch. He had enough experience at the start of the season (penalty gate, departure wishes, image rights, ed). No, Kyk wants to server for its Mondial, concludes Le Parisien, and for its mission…
