France eased into the quarter-finals of the World Cup, where they will play England, thanks to Kylian Mbappe’s brilliant performance against Poland in a 3-1 last-16 victory.
This time, the Tricolor superstar appeared in a press conference after the match.
Kylian Mbappe took the man of the match award in three consecutive meetings and, for the first time, went to the conference, thus sparing the French federation from another FIFA fine.
“I will pay the fine because I don’t think the federation should pay on my behalf,” the Paris Saint-Germain member initially declared.
“It’s nothing against you journalists in particular, I want to focus on my football.”
Mbappe has revealed that he wants to focus more on the World Cup rather than making a statement to the media, but FIFA regulations state that the player who has won the man of the match award must say a few words. before the media.
