Following the announcement of Hugo Lloris to retire from international football, the French team had to find a new captain.
And who else than Kylian Mbappé to take on this responsibility? As our colleagues from the team inform us, it is the PSG striker who was chosen by Didier Deschamps to wear the captain’s armband.
He was preferred over Antoine Griezmann. Didier Deschamps justified himself by explaining that “one of the criteria is legitimacy”.
Kylian Mbappé had also worn the armband at PSG in recent matches.
