Mbappe has been a hot topic of conversation over the past few days, having agreed to a tell-all interview with French media outlets such as L’Equipe.

Mbappe needed to have arms thrown around him after what happened against Switzerland, but instead he had a tidal wave of criticism launched in his direction.

He speaks as though leaving the national team would be a good thing for them, but you wonder if it could actually be beneficial for him.

France are undeniably better WITH Mbappe in the team, but he doesn’t need to stick around if all he’s getting is abuse.
