DAY 28: Will Mbappe ever reach Messi’s godlike status?
With a World Cup final between France and Argentina taking place tomorrow in Doha, our host Ian Ladyman is joined by Chris Sutton, Rob Draper and Ian Herbert to analyse key talking points around the biggest match in world football.
Ian asks if Kylian Mbappe will be able ever to enjoy Lionel Messi’s level of profile while playing for Paris St-Germain. Rob discusses the virus running through the France camp and the team ask whether the situation is being exaggerated to unsettle Argentina. Chris, meanwhile, warns Gareth Southgate that he would regret walking away from the England manager’s job.
We hope you enjoy this episode of World Cup Confidential – we’ll be back tomorrow and Monday, from 9am.
