France forward, Kylian Mbappe, has revealed that it will be an uphill task for his country to retain the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

Recall that France are in Group D of the 2022 FIFA World Cup with Denmark, Australia and Tunisia.

He made this known in an interview with Sports Illustrated, where he raised his doubt on the possibility of France to replicate 2018 feat.

“It’s been my mentality since I’m young, is always to do more, to push the limits,” Mbappe said.

“For me it was not the end when I won the World Cup, it was the first chapter of something crazy. It’s so hard to win two in a row, but if you want to write the history you have to do something nobody do.

“So we’re going to try, I think we have a good team, we’re a good collective. The manager is the same and we have the country behind us.”

 

Personal life

 

In a 2018 interview with Time, Mbappé spoke about the sacrifices he made as a teenager to focus on his football development: “I did not have the moments of so-called normal people during adolescence, like going out with friends, enjoying good times.” But despite missing out on a “normal” life, Mbappé states he is “living the life he always dreamed of”. Just over four years after making his professional debut he had gotten over 50 million Instagram followers. While he admits his “life has been totally turned upside down” since he first entered the spotlight, he says he is “happy”.

 

On 25 June 2021, Kylian’s brother Ethan signed an “aspiring” contract with Paris Saint-Germain in a deal lasting until 2024.
