Mbappé, the scathing response!


By: Manu Tournoux

Disappointing at the forefront of PSG’s attack and frustrated lately, Kylian Mbappé celebrated his 25th birthday and the last match of the year with a victorious double against FC Metz, Wednesday at Parc des Princes (3-1) .

Criticism over the use of Kylian Mbappé at PSG will continue during the holidays. The French prodigy has still not convinced in this specific role of center forward, which he took over on Wednesday evening against FC Metz at the Parc des Princes, but it is still he who made his team win during the last match of the year (3-1). The Parisians have five points more than their runner-up, Nice, at the end of the first leg of Ligue 1.

Luis Enrique’s men came up against the Moselle team during the first period, with a discreet Randal Kolo Muani as right winger in place of Ousmane Dembélé. The Catalan coach maintained his 3-2-4-1 used in Lille last Sunday, with Warren Zaire-Emery right side/central midfielder. Vitinha, however, broke the deadlock after returning from the locker room on a cross from Lee Kang-In (49th).

The Mbappé show, on the day of his 25th birthday, could begin. The captain of the French team sent a superb strike from 25 meters under the bar of Alexandre Oukidja (60th). And after Matthieu Udol reduced the gap from a corner, Mbappé sprang on an opposing back pass to score the 3-1 goal (83rd). He is the first player to score 18 goals after 17 days of French D1 since record holder Josip Skoblar in 1970-1971.
