French star Kylian Mbappe admitted that he would “never digest” his country’s loss of the 2022 FIFA World Cup final against Argentina by penalty kicks, despite scoring a hat-trick for the blue team.
Mbappe said Wednesday, after scoring the winning goal for his team, Paris Saint-Germain, in the fatal time against Strasbourg (2-1) in the 16th stage of the French League, “I think I will never digest it … As I told my colleagues, there is no reason for the club to pay the reason for the failure of the national team, there are two cases.” Two different.”
The Qatar World Cup top scorer admitted that he spent “two difficult hours” after losing a penalty shootout against Argentina on December 18 at Lusail Stadium in Qatar, where he scored a hat-trick, including two penalty kicks. .
From the penalty spot, he also scored on Wednesday, but this time it was the winning goal for the Qatari-owned league leaders. He added from the mixed interview area, “It is good to reconnect with the victories, to be associated with the club, the fans, and colleagues.”
The twenty-four-year-old’s quick return to Saint-Germain’s exercises after the historic final of the World Cup came as a surprise. “We spoke before the final, and I told coach (Christophe Galtier) that I would return, regardless of the result, because I was in good shape and wanted to continue playing. Two difficult matches await us.”
And about the ridicule he was subjected to by some Argentine players after the World Cup final, especially goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez, the 2018 World Cup champion with France said, “The celebrations are not my problem. Leo (Messi) to keep scoring and winning matches.”
“I discussed with (Messi) after the match and congratulated him. It was the goal of an entire life for him, and for me as well, but I failed, so you must always maintain a good image,” he confirmed.
