Ligue 1: Mbappe returns to PSG after World Cup heartbreak
Paris Saint-Germain forward, Kylian Mbappe, has made a quick return to training just days after France’s World Cup final defeat against Argentina.
Less than 72 hours ago, Mbappe netted a hat-trick as Les Bleus lost their title in Qatar.
The superstar, who scored a hat-trick in the Qatar showpiece against winners Argentina, touched down in Paris with the rest of the Les Bleus squadfor a memorable homecoming before reporting for training with his club on Wednesday morning.
Mbappe will be hoping to put Sunday’s defeat to Argentina behind him with a big push for silverware in the second half of the season.
PSG are top of the Ligue 1 table and will face Bayern Munich in the last 16 of the Champions League. Together with Lionel Messi, the 24-year-old will be aiming to win Europe’s top club prize to make up for his World Cup woe.
PSG remain unbeaten this season, winning 13 Ligue 1 games and drawing two. That run has put them five points clear of second-placed Lens in the French top flight.
