Mbappe Acclaimed as a ‘Remarkable Leader’ Following His Commanding Comeback with the French Team

Kylian Mbappe, soon to dazzle crowds in Real Madrid colors, was the undisputed highlight of France’s friendly rout of Luxembourg this Wednesday.

Brushing aside the hullabaloo surrounding his imminent departure to Spain, Mbappe shone brilliantly as France dismantled Luxembourg with a 3-0 scoreline.

France’s coach, Didier Deschamps, praised Mbappe’s capacity to inspire the team, especially after notching a goal and facilitating two others at Stade Saint-Symphorien in Metz.

Mbappe’s brilliance began as he outmaneuvered opponents on the left, setting up Randal Kolo Muani and later Jonathan Clauss for goals either side of halftime.

The dynamic forward then crowned his performance with a stylish goal, courtesy of an assist from ex-PSG cohort Bradley Barcola.

With the European Championship kicking off in just over a week, Deschamps expressed satisfaction with Mbappe’s formidable return to the national squad.

Speaking to TF1, Deschamps remarked, “His leadership is terrific. Initially he felt a bit sluggish, yet he’d resolved to rebound from his PSG stint vigorously.”

Before their Euro debut, France will test their mettle against Canada in another preparatory match.

Deschamps admitted the Luxembourg game showed promising signs but maintained that there’s still fine-tuning needed.

“It’s solid groundwork,” he observed. “We’re keeping the hype in check but acknowledge the promise. Some tweaks in positioning are due, but our attack showed great diversity,” he elaborated.

Adding to the night’s milestones, Olivier Giroud set a record as France’s oldest player to compete in a match, entering the game aged 37 years and 249 days.
