Is this the year of Kylian Mbappé's first Golden Ball?
Fourth in 2018 and sixth in 2019 in the ranking of the famous individual distinction, the striker of the France team has the aura of a credible candidate if the Blues score this Euro, which they start this Tuesday evening (9 p.m. ) against Germany (9 p.m., M 6).
An ambition that he evokes in an interview with RTL and broadcast on Tuesday morning.
“It goes through the Euro, there is no choice.
But it's early.
I've said this the other years I played it, I try not to think about it.
I can't think of an individual trophy, then go out and be collective.
If the collective makes you shine, you can shine by yourself and you can achieve this kind of price, explains the PSG striker.
All the matches where I made history, I had left with a collective intention, and the team gave it back to me.

To attack his competition, the 22-year-old phenomenon will challenge Manuel Neuer's Mannschaft in Munich, in a stadium where, in April in the Champions League, he scored two goals for the one who is also the Bayern goalkeeper.
“It gives you more experience in these kinds of games.
Neuer is one of the best goalkeepers in history, believes the former Monaco player.
We're going to play against him again, it's a good opportunity to play a good game.

The striker of the Blues, still "hungry" according to him three years after their victory in the World Cup, was also able to take advantage of the days preceding the entry into the running of the France team to take a look at the performance of the Dutchman Georginio Wijnaldum, new PSG recruit and scorer in the Netherlands' victory over Ukraine (3-2) on Sunday. “He's a very good player, I'm very happy he's coming,” he says. It was a great opportunity that the club seized. They worked very well. Now Paris Saint-Germain is absolutely not my priority. My priority is the France team, it's this Euro. I am 100% focused on it.
