Mbappe on 2022 World Cup: I didn’t come here to win Golden Ball or Golden Boot

Kylian Mbappe, the star forward of reigning French Ligue 1 champions PSG and reigning World Cup champions France, announced after their 3-1 win against Poland in the Round of 16 at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar that he came to Qatar to win the World Cup.

“The only objective for me is to win the World Cup,” Mbappe said, Time reported. “The only thing I dream is this. I came here to win this World Cup. I didn’t come here to win the Golden Ball or Golden Boot. If I win it of course I’m going to be happy, but that’s not why I’m here. I’m here to win and I’m here to help the French national team.”

“I dreamed about this tournament. I adapted the season to the World Cup from the point of view of my physical and psychological condition. I wanted to arrive here in the best condition and immediately be in the rhythm. So far, everything is going well, but the most difficult is still ahead," Mbappe added, Goal.com reported.

France's opponents in the quarterfinals of the 2022 World Cup will be England, which defeated Senegal 3-0 in their Round of 16 match.
