Kylian Mbappe RETURNS To PSG Training (Video)
France and PSG forward Kylian Mbappe has returned to PSG training just days after the World Cup final loss to Argentina, MySportDab reports.
Mbappe was reportedly given ten days off by his club but has shunned the 10 days off to return to training.
He was not expected to feature in PSG’s Ligue 1 game against Strasbourg due to the 10 days off.
Now, he may likely make the squad that will face Strasbourg because of his early return.
The 24-year-old starred for France through all the World Cup games, from the group stage to knockout matches.
He won the tournament’s Golden Boot after scoring 9 goals, including a hat-trick in the World Cup final against Argentina.
The former Monaco star took the burden of Les Bleus to respond to the challenge when the team trailed Argentina 2-0 in the first half.
He was said to have engaged the team in a passionate dressing charge that influenced the direction of the game in the second half.
Mbappe bagged a quick brace in the 80th minute to bring the scoreline to a 2-2 draw.
When Lionel Messi restored Argentina’s lead in the 108th minute, Mbappe responded again with another goal from the penalty spot to bag his hat-trick in the game.
Despite losing to Argentina in the penalty shootout, Kylian Mbappe converted his penalty to increase his goal tally to 9 in the tournament.
Kylian Mbappe won the 2018 World Cup with France. He is regarded as the next big star that has graced the game of football, given his records so far in the game.
He has quit his off to return to PSG for the resumption of the 2022/23 Ligue 1 season.
Meanwhile, his teammate, Lionel Messi, is currently in his homeland Rosario in, Argentina.
Lionel Messi was given a heroic welcome when he arrived in Argentina with their third World Cup trophy.
Argentina defeated France 4-2 on penalties after a thrilling 3-3 draw at the Lusail Stadium in Qatar.
