Mbappe taught Walker a lesson he won’t forget
The England defender had unleashed the war of words against the France striker. A video also shows how a few moments before the match I snub him with a blatant gesture. Mbappé took his revenge on the pitch. Revenge is a dish best served cold. Kylian Mbappé boxed it up and put it in front of Kyle Walker.
The England defender had been on fire before the quarter-final match against France. “I certainly won’t roll out the red carpet for him…” and again “I know how to stop him” were some of the belligerent statements before the meeting.
And, just to make the attacker understand what the treatment reserved for him would be,
he underlined the concept by making a very eloquent gesture in the tunnel that leads towards the green rectangle.
The scene was recorded by the cameras: the shots refer to the moments before entering the pitch.
It is at that moment that the teams find themselves next to each other when the tension is palpable and the maximum concentration.

The video shows the Paris Saint-Germain and Les Bleus striker swinging aside, stepping out of line, and extending his hand to his opponent.
It is difficult to say what the real intentions were: was it perhaps a provocation? can not be said, or was it a cunning psychological move to challenge the defender? maybe… The fact is that in the face of that gesture Walker assumes an attitude of sufficiency.
he has a lesson in mind for Walker that he will not forget easily.
A frontal shot shows how the England defender turns to Mbappé but I snub him. He has his hands crossed behind his shoulders, makes a slight movement with his torso,
barely turns his neck (as if to peek at who’s bothering him), and gives the player a cold gaze. The French champion collects and smiles slyly, he has a lesson in mind for Walker that he will not forget easily.
It wasn’t easy to get around the marking, Walker did his best to stem his incursions but in the shoulder-to-shoulder duel, in an open field, with the ball at his feet, Mbappé didn’t let him escape.
There is one image, in particular, that shows the superiority of the Frenchman: the defender’s desperate attempt to hold the opponent by the shirt who outsprinted him despite the tackle.
It’s like a sleight of hand:
It’s like a sleight of hand: I disappear on one side, appear on the other, and… hello, the cross is served. Too bad that neither Giroud nor Dembélé converted the nugget that had been placed on their feet into a goal.
Over here? No, because Mbappé will abandon himself to a blatant exultation when Kane misses the decisive penalty kick for qualification, remaining destroyed and in tears. Pure enjoyment for him who laughed last.
