Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe says he was criticized for not scoring enough goals during his youth game.
You must be strong
The 22-year-old is the Ligue 1 top scorer this season with 20 goals from 25 appearances, while he is a joint No. 2 in the Champions League with six in seven appearances. But the French International admits that he has not always been so prolific and has been accused of being a showman in his earlier days. He said that for a long time in youth teams, people said that he didn’t score enough and showed too much. In football these days you have to score. And to score, you need to practice how to do it. We need to work on this in training – he said. When you fight, no one can take you away, that you have to be strong mentally and do everything to understand that you can move mountains. “When I go out on the pitch, I tell myself that I will give everything to be the best that I can be.”
Mbappe scores many goals
Mbappe has already been crowned world champion with his national team. The striker lamented the 2018 World Cup four times as Les Bleus lifted the title for the second time. The Didier Deschamps people kicked off their campaign to defend their crown this week as they kicked off their 2022 World Cup qualifying campaign with a 1-1 draw against Ukraine. They are favorites to win in a group that also includes Bosnia and Herzegovina, Finland and Kazakhstan, but Mbappe hopes to once again lift the trophy. He said that they want to win the second one. The World Championship is a goal, something that you work towards for a long time and what you win when you have worked your way to the top. “I was lucky enough to win it at 19, this is what will help me progress in my career. There will be other problems, and my ambition is to win the second.”
