Kylian Mbappe congratulate Lionel Messi

After defeating France in penalties, Argentina won the World Cup for the third time in its history. Lionel Messi won the World Cup he had been after for so long. They crowned him the best player in the competition, following the final whistle.

In the World Cup final against Argentina, Mbappe scored three goals for France, but Lionel Messi was the one to take home the gold.

Mbappe spoke to the media after scoring for PSG in their 2-1 victory over Strasbourg and discussed Lionel Messi, Emiliano Martinez, and the World Cup:

“After the game, I briefly spoke with him and offered my congratulations. He set out on the journey of a lifetime, and I did too, but I fell short. You need to play well at all times”.

The adamant response of Mbappe to Emiliano Martinez’s sarcastic remark about him

In the championship match, Argentina defeated France 4-2 (3-3) to win the FIFA World Cup 2022 trophy. After a 36-year absence, the South American country finally captured the prized medal. However, the triumph bus parade that was held in the capital city of Buenos Aires to commemorate the win of the Lionel Messi-led team attracted a lot of attention for the wrong reasons as Argentina goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez made fun of the French star Kylian Mbappe. Martinez was spotted cradling a baby toy with Kylian Mbappe’s visage during the bus procession.

Mbappe, though, responded to the event in a very collected manner and called it “futile thing.”

“Holidays are not my concern. I don’t waste my time on such pointless pursuits.”
