After the game, Mbappe had this to say in an interview

“This is the competition of my dreams, and I am delighted to be here,” Mbappe said. “I have prepared all season to be ready.

“When I didn’t speak to the media in the early rounds of this competition, it was because I just needed to focus on the tournament and my football. When I want to concentrate, that’s how I function, but when I was told the French Federation would be fined, I paid it myself because it was my responsibility.

“But I am here and focused on winning the World Cup again. We’re a long way from achieving our objective of going all the way and winning the World Cup, though. The first challenge is the quarterfinal, and that’s what we are focusing on now.”


England beat the African champions by 3-0 with goals by Jordan Henderson, Harry Kane, and Bukayo Saka . England showed again another outstanding performance and their biggest objective right now is going up against France but both teams are in good form they have good players so it will be a good game to watch.
