Kylian Mbappe had a lot to say about Argentina, Brazil and South American football.
Kylian Mbappe has been in the news lately but one comment has angered the whole continent. The French star and PSG spoke to TNT Brasil where they said the following:
“Argentina and Brazil are not playing the best matches to qualify for the 2022 World Cup. Football is not as developed as in Europe and that comes from watching the last World Cup.”
This created a great controversy on social networks. Considering the number of trophies and World Cups won by Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay, his opinion is perhaps less certain.
Argentina played across South America to qualify for the 2022 World Cup. Kylian Mbappe and France were scheduled to play against Ukraine, Finland, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Kazakhstan. You can decide which team had the toughest route to the World Cup.
If you look at any of the top European teams, you will find some Argentinian and Brazilian players. Lionel Messi, Angel Di María, Neymar jr, Thiago Silva, Alison, Ederson, Leandro Paredes, Emiliano Martínez, Cristian Romero, Dani Alves, Fabinho, Lautaro Martínez, Gio Lo Celso and Juan Foyth, to name a few , are all important to their teams.
