Kylian Mbappe claims the Euros is more difficult than the World Cup

During a news conference prior to his France participation in Euro 2024, Kylian Mbappe raised eyebrows. The 25-year-old said at a media appearance on Tuesday that he thinks the European Championship is harder than the FIFA World Cup.

The Euros are complicated. For me, more complicated than a World Cup,” Mbappe said. “Even if there is more pressure at the World Cup. All the teams know each other, we play against each other all the time. Tactically, it is a very similar soccer.”

Mbappe, who won the World Cup with the French squad in 2018, was on the verge of repeating as champion when Les Bleus faced off against Lionel Messi’s Argentina in the Qatar 2022 final.

It may sound odd to hear such a well-known player minimize the challenge of the World Cup, but it also demonstrates how modest Mbappe is of his accomplishments. The striker may have just been motivated to add this championship to his resume because he will be trying to win his first Euros this summer.
