Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe is now set to take on even more responsibilities in France’s attack for the ongoing Euro 2020 tournament.
Mbappe recently attempted a free-kick during France’s draw result against Hungary.
FC Barcelona forward Antoine Griezmann noted following the game that Mbappe called to take the attempt, and his request was subsequently granted without any issue from a teammate.
As noted by RMC Sport, Mbappe will now be France’s designated player in direct free-kick situations.
Griezmann is expected to continue to take non-shot on goal free-kicks for France, which will include situations such as with sending aerial balls into the penalty box.
Mbappe is not well renowned as a free-kick specialist, unlike his PSG teammates Neymar and Angel Di Maria.
Still, Mbappe does have what it takes to score a key goal for France via a free-kick attempt.
Les Bleus would surely like to see such a goal scored by Mbappe over the upcoming Euro 2020 knockout stage.
