Kylian Mbappé reacted strongly to a statement by Noël Le Graët, president of the French Football Federation. Between the two men, the cloth burns…
What would the Blues be without Kylian Mbappé? At only 23 years old, Paris Saint-Germain footballer became the star of the French football team.

See you in December 2022 for the World Cup in Qatar
After the debacle during the 2022 Nations League, the French football team will have to remotivate itself to face the next big deadline that awaits it: the 2022 World Cup ! After their coronation in 2018, Karim Benzema, Antoine Griezmann and the others are expected at the turn. This year, the competition will take place in Qatar from November 21 to December 18, 2022.
