Kylian Mbappe 'to donate France match fees to charity'

Kylian Mbappe 'to donate France match fees to charity'

Mbappe's speed and power ruthlessly exposed Argentina's defence in a 4-3 win on Saturday that re-established France among the World Cup favourites. The former United No 9 said: "It was magnificent game of football with two teams going end to end".

The 19-year-old's second half double effectively sealed his side's progress to the quarter-finals and also made him the first teenager to score two goals in a finals match since the Brazilian great in 1958. According to L'Equipe, his lawyers have recently made arrangements with the football federation to give any earnings gained from any worldwide matches outside of the World Cup to various other charities - a regular game earns Mbappe approximately $23,000. "There is no better way of doing that than scoring", Mbappe said.

Japan's oracle octopus turned into sashimi
An octopus who had predicted all three of Japan's group stage results at the World Cup has been turned into seafood. Rabiot is not the first animal prophet to capture the hearts and minds of World Cup fans.

But England legends Gary Neville and Gary Lineker have been quick to remind supporters that Mbappe is not alone with his kindness.

France could potentially meet Tite's men in the semi-finals. More than his brace against Argentina, the manner in which he scored them stood out.

The next move to make that many have been suggesting has been to trade for Kawhi Leonard . Kawhi Leonard seems to change his mind more often than he changes clothes.

The 1998 champions won 4-3 and looked a different side from the one that struggled to find their cutting edge in the group stage, pouring forward with pace and goal to stretch the ageing Argentine defence in Kazan. "Godin and Gimenez play together at Atletico, they know each other perfectly, they barely make mistakes".

"It is a bit premature to talk about what we might use the money for". Mbappe has not disappointed, becoming one of the best attackers in the world and living up to his hefty price tag.

Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin could meet without aides, Kremlin says
Such concessions are why a one-on-one encounter between Trump and Putin is a wild card. We agree to disagree with Russian Federation on that front.

"I don't like comparing players - Mbappe has to become Mbappe and that is all. Sometimes, I even feel like he enjoys playing with the kids more than the kids themselves!" "He's got so much talent". We take a look at what some of football's biggest names have to say about this future superstar.
