Mbappe to use World Cup experience in Champions League


Kylian Mbappe thinks that winning the World Cup this summer will give him an advantage in trying to help PSG qualify for the knockout stages of the Champions League.

Mbappe knows exactly what it takes at this level, having starred in France's glorious World Cup campaign in Russia, scoring in the 4-2 final win over Croatia.

The teenager - who turns 20 next month - believes PSG can learn from France's campaign in Russia, and sees their 4-3 win over Argentina in the last 16 as a reference point.

"At the World Cup, during the group stage, nobody thought we would go on to win it," said the forward.

"I had said our aim was to win it and people laughed at me a bit. So it can be difficult to look too far forward, all the more so in the Champions League where there are so many matches."

"We are not missing much. It is not much but at the same time it is a lot, because in top-level football it is the little details that are the most important."
