Mbappe rubs it in for Belgians, says ‘I’m in the final’

France’s Kylian Mbappe on Tuesday appears to rub it in for the Belgian team when he said, “I’m in the final.’

Mbappe made the statement as he apologised to the Belgian team for any offence he might have committed against them during the France-Belgium encounter on Tuesday that netted 1-0 in favour of France.

Belgian star, Eden Hazard, and his teammates had lined up to criticise France for their defensive tactics that earned Les Bleus a tight 1-0 in Tuesday night’s World Cup semi-final in Saint Petersburg.

Hazard continued: “The French team has done what they have done since Didier Deschamps came in as coach. They may not play the ball well, but they defend well.”

In response, Kylian Mbappé had one thing to say to the jibes from Belgian players: “If I offended them, I apologise. But me, I’m in the final,” reports The Local.

“At the end of the match, we gave everything to defend this little advantage. It’s not the most pleasant, but it’s effective.”

Meanwhile, Twitter has been  filled with mixed reactions. On the one hand, he is praised for being very skillful with the ball; on the other hand, there are tweets about how he rubbed in the loss of the Belgian team by falling down constantly, a move similar to that of Brazil’s Neymar.
