Kylian Mbappe, who finished second in the race, just like at the World Cup in Qatar, praised his Paris Saint-Germain team-mate for beating him in the final The World Cup. Karim Benzema, on the other hand, sent through his story a rather thick hint of his dissatisfaction with the selection of Messi at his expense. Mbappe, who in
2022 finished as the king of the goals of the World Cup with 8 conquests, and led Paris Saint-Germain to the French championship when he was selected as the player The standout in the local league, had to settle for only a place in the FIFA squad of the year.
