The world outside European football lovers is starting to take notice of one of the most exciting young players right now. This 19-year-old made it to the cover of American weekly issue of Time magazine and the spotlight shines brightly on him as France faces Germany tonight in the UEFA Nations League. Germany took a severe beating on Saturday night in a 3:0 loss to the Netherlands and they face even a tougher task tonight. Stade de France may witness another great moment from Kylian Mbappe. His recent feat of scoring four goals in 13 minutes should be on the minds of Germany’s defensive line. Kylian also scored on three out of the last four matches for his national squad.
Didier Deschamps was asked in a recent interview to comment on youngster’s ability to handle the fame and the hype around a PSG star and he confidently replied: “Not at all, he’s no big head. Even if he’s in the papers or on the cover of Time and has become world famous,” Deschamps continued, “He’s handling it all really well.”
All eyes will be pointed at him tonight and whether he can produce another brilliant performance and again score for his national team is the question of the day.
