PSG partially satisfied: Mbappe congratulated Messi, Neymar left the stadium | Israel today


Quite a few eyes were on the team's return game from the City of Lights to the league in 1:2 against Strasbourg • The star congratulated his friend who beat him in the World Cup final and avoided referring to the teasing he received • The Brazilian who received two yellow cards did not wait for his friends at the end

After the World Cup ended with Argentina's resounding victory over France that included a duel between Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe, PSG were among the most intriguing teams as to how they would return from the break.

Yesterday (Wednesday) when Messi was still recovering from the World Cup in his homeland, the team from the City of Lights managed to beat Strasbourg 1:2 with a winning goal by Mbappe in the 96th minute.

What clouded the sweet victory was the removal of Neymar who received two yellow cards in two minutes with the second coming for impersonation.

The Brazilian, who was eliminated in the quarter-finals of the World Cup with his friends by Croatia, did not stay until the end in the stadium and abandoned it in nerves.

Mbappe was asked after the game about his relationship with Messi and his opinion on the behavior of the Albiceleste goalkeeper - Emiliano Martinez - who teased him more than once after the final.

"I spoke to Messi after the game and congratulated him on the win, for him it was a title he was looking for and waiting for all his life. For me too, but I lost," said the 24-year-old superstar, "I always try to be fair, and these celebrations are not my problem, I don't waste energy on things like that."

When asked if he would be able to recover from the loss with France in the final, Mbappe answered: "I will never digest it. It is not something that will ever be digested. But I told the coach and my friends, there is no reason for the club to pay for my loss with the national team. These are two different worlds."
