Mbappé Appointed New French National Team Captain After Lloris Retirement

Here Is The Easy Money-Making Trick Everyone Is Talking About! Learn More Here!

After the retirement of Hugo Lloris, Kylian Mbappe has been named his successor as France’s captain.

The Paris Saint-Germain forward was proposed to become the leader after discussions with coach Didier Deschamps and accepted the honour.

Lloris had been skipper for more than a decade and had captained the World Cup Final in 2018 before losing to Argentina.

Antoine Griezmann then took over as Vice-captain from Raphael Varane who also ended his international career that year.

Mbappe is vice-captain at PSG and led them recently when Marquinhos was absent in their game against Rennes.

He scored a hat trick in France’s last World Cup defeat, making him an ideal fit for this role.

His first game as captain will be Friday’s Euro 2024 qualifier against the Netherlands at the Stade de France.
