“France, of course”assured the young striker with a laugh, when asked about who his five candidates are to win the Cup. “I think Brazil is also a good team, but hthere are several European teams too”he remarked.

“The advantage we have here is that we always play high-level matches, we have the Nations League for example. When we get to the World Cup, we will be ready, ”said Mbappé, who will have to defend the title that he won in Russia 2018.

At the same time, he considered that “Argentina and Brazil don’t play games of a high level to get to the World Cup. In South America football is not as advanced as in Europe. And that’s why when you look at the last World Cups it’s always the Europeans who win.

It is worth clarifying that the last South American team that became champion in a World Cup event was Brazil in the edition of Korea-Japan 2002. In the following 20 years, Italy, Spain, Germany and France were the ones that won the Cup, and only Argentina managed to reach a final (in 2014).
