Deschamps: World Cup is Mbappe’s stage

France head coach Didier Deschamps has backed Kylian Mbappe to shine at the World Cup, labelling it “his competition” after the forward excelled in a comeback win over Australia.

Olivier Giroud scored twice to equal Thierry Henry’s all-time record of 51 goals for France, while Adrien Rabiot and Mbappe were also on the scoresheet in a 4-1 win for the reigning world champions at Al Janoub Stadium.

Mbappe, who hit four goals en route to helping France to win the 2018 World Cup, was named man of the match following the victory as Deschamps hailed the Paris St Germain ace.

“Kylian of course has been one of the best players in the world for some time now and he is feeling very confident, you can see that in the way he is playing,” he said.

“I knew that he was going to be ready for this World Cup, it is his
competition, he knows how to make the difference.

“But he is part of a team and he has always been able to play as part of a team even though he is an individual, flair player as well. So that is great for us. I have got a lot of attackers, but Kylian is of course an outstanding one.”
