After scoring the game-winning goal on his return to action for Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday, Kylian Mbappe, a star for France, claimed he would never get over the heartbreak of losing the World Cup final.
Ten days after scoring a hat-trick against Argentina in the championship game that the South Americans ultimately won on penalties, Mbappe stated, “I guess I’m never going to get over that.”
Mbappe admitted that he had experienced some “tough periods” since the defeat, but he appeared unaffected by the setback in Qatar as he won and converted a 96th-minute penalty to secure PSG a dramatic 2-1 victory over Strasbourg on the return of Ligue 1 after the World Cup.
The 24-year-old Mbappe stated, “As I told my teammates, there is no reason why the club should bear the cost of the failure of the national team; they are two very different situations.”
“It helps me to build a connection with the team, the fans, and my teammates and to come back with a win.”
In PSG’s victory, Neymar, who had been in tears following Brazil’s World Cup quarterfinal elimination at the hands of Croatia, was dismissed for receiving two yellow cards.
