Lionel Messi Lauds Mbappe For His Excellent Show In The Final

Lionel Messi has praised his teammate Kylian Mbappe for scoring a hat trick in the 2022 World Cup final. Messi also says that it’s amazing that Mbappe’s performance wasn’t enough to win the trophy for France.

After a thrilling 3-3 draw in Qatar, Argentina beat France 4-2 on penalties to win their first World Cup title under Messi’s leadership.

Mbappe, a Paris Saint-Germain teammate, became the second player in World Cup history to score a hat trick in the men’s final. The Argentina captain scored twice.

On March 6, Messi stated to PSG TV,

“It really was a breathtaking final. It was crazy how the match went. Kylian scored three incredible goals, in a final! Not being able to be champion after that was crazy.

“But he’s already won it too, and he knows what it’s like to be world champion. So yes, it was a great final for the football world. And now it’s true that it’s nice to be able to play in the same team with him, and I hope we can do great things here in Paris.”

Last month, Messi also beat Mbappe to win the Best FIFA Men’s Player award. Mbappe, who is 35 years old, said that after a difficult debut season, he feels more settled in France.

Talking about his career in France, Messi said:

“I feel more comfortable with the club, with the city, with everything that Paris means. And the truth is that I am really enjoying this season. I think my whole life has been like that.

“About dedication, work, effort and wanting more every day. I’ve arrived at a new club and I want to win the title with Paris, to be able to achieve the big goals we set ourselves at the beginning of the season.”

In the second leg of the Champions League round-of-16, PSG will face Bayern Munich on March 8 with the goal of overcoming a 1-0 deficit.

He said,

“We’re going to Munich, where it’s going to be a very tough match, just like the first one,” he said. “Everything will be decided by small details, especially as it is very difficult to win in this stadium.

“But I think that if we do things right, we are capable of turning things around. We want to continue our journey in the Champions League. And that’s what we will try to do.”

Meanwhile, Neymar, the French champions’ star forward, has been ruled out for the rest of the season with an ankle injury.
