Kylian Mbappe is going to play his second consecutive FIFA World Cup final against Argentina. But now, fans on social media have remembered when he judged the South American soccer and absolutely slammed him.
The Qatar 2022 final is here with a match between France and Argentina. Fans have now remembered when Kylian Mbappe was a harsh judge of South American football, and have taken to social media to roundly condemn the striker ahead of the match against La Albiceleste.
Back in May of this year, Kylian Mbappe spoke about what he expects from the World Cup. The French striker did not see any competition for European teams, despite the great moment that Argentina and Brazil were experiencing.
“Argentina didn’t play high-quality matches to get to the World Cup,” Mbappe told TNT Sports Brasil. “In South America, football is not as advanced as Europe. That’s why if you look at the last World Cup, the Europeans always win.”
Well, those words didn’t evolve as he thought. Now, Argentina will face them in the Qatar 2022 Final and fans have reacted on social media to what Mbappe said, slamming the striker and supporting the South American side.
