Mbappe: "pivotal" Griezmann has shoulders to handle pressure.
PSG wonderkid Kylian Mbappe says Atletico Madrid striker Griezmann is the boss.
Both Mbappe and Griezmann are expected to star for France at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
Mbappe believes that Griezmann is the top man for France and he has proven himself before.
“I think that he is the boss since the Euro already,”- Mbappe
“When you end the European Championship the best goal-scorer in your own country, you show the world that you have the shoulders to handle the pressure”.
“It’s true that he went through a bad patch following the competition but he showed how [much of] an amazing player he was and he is by scoring goal after goal”
“He will be pivotal for us if we want to get results.”
France begin their Group C campaign against Australia Saturday before meetings with Peru (June 21) and Denmark (June 26).
