IT Hurts, I Can’t Get Over It—Kylian Mbappe
Losing a final is never an easy thing, and for Paris Saint Germain star, Kylian Mbappe, it hurts very badly losing a world cup final, particularly on penalties after putting much effort into stealing the trophy from proverbial winners, Argentina.
In a recent statement on the 2022 FIFA World Cup final loss to Lionel Messi and his Argentina colleagues, Kylian Mbappe asserted that it would be tough for him to overcome.
Mbappe made this statement following PSG’s 2-1 victory against Strasbourg on Wednesday.
In the World Cup final, the 23-year-old scored a hat-trick, but it wasn’t enough to give France a back-to-back championship.
Messi guided Argentina to a 4-2 victory on penalties following a 3-3 stalemate in regulation and extra time.
With eight goals, Mbappe concluded the 2022 FIFA World Cup campaign leading the scoring chart, beating Messi to the FIFA Golden Boot.
Kylian Mbappe began the game for PSG, saving their face with a penalty in the 96th minute.
“I think I’m never going to get over it,” Mbappe told the reporters.
Mbappe said that he expressed to his teammates his belief that PSG should not be made to suffer due to France’s sadness.
“As I said to my teammates, there is no reason why the club should pay the price for the failure of the national team, they are two very different situations,” the 24-year-old continued.”
