Kylian Mbappé ended the worrying scoring drought that had many wondering what’s wrong with him. The 24-year-old registered a brace in France’s 2-1 win over the Netherlands on Friday at Johan Cruyff Arena.
Furthermore, the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner helped Les Bleus punch their ticket for UEFA Euro 2024 in Germany next summer. AC Milan’s Théo Hernandez recently spoke with Téléfoot, revealing the only way to stop the Frenchman.
“Playing next to Kylian is incredible, and I hope it continues for years to come,” Hernandez told the French media outlet. “How to stop Kylian Mbappé? Well …. make a foul! Make a foul when you can. (laughs).”

Hernandez will have come up with a way to stop his teammate on the France national team once they return to their respective clubs. Paris Saint-Germain and AC Milan will face off in back-to-back UEFA Champions League contests.
Furthermore, both teams are separated by one point for second place in Group F. So, these two matches will determine who will likely control their destiny regarding qualifying for the knockout stages. If PSG hopes to advance past the group stage, they’ll need at least four points.
All eyes will be on Mbappé and Co. to have a better performance than what they had in the 4-1 loss to Newcastle United on Matchday 2.
