Ahead of France’s midweek fixture against Bosnia-Herzegovina, Didier Deschamps has a task for out-of-form Kylian Mbappe.

Didier Deschamps has given a battle cry for Kylian Mbappe as he demands improvement from the France youngster. During the recent fixtures, the 22-year-old failed to perform up to his standards on the international stage.

Mbappe had a disastrous game when France played against Ukraine in their opening match of the 2022 World Cup qualification. The game ended as a 1-1 draw.

Four days later, the PSG speedster started on the sidelines against Kazakhstan and missed a penalty during the second half. As a result of a combination of everything, Deschamps wants Mbappe to amend his mistakes when they play their next battle.

What was said?

Ahead of France’s midweek Group D fixture against Bosnia-Herzegovina, Deschamps told the reporters. “He cannot be satisfied with what he has done so far.”

“Kylian was not very comfortable in the first game. He was much better against Kazakhstan and had chances. Of course, he wants to score more goals and create them.”

He also received questions regarding Mbappe missed penalty and whether it affected him mentally. Didier said: “No, I don’t feel it has. It happens to everyone.”

“I know Kylian well. He can, over a match or a period of time, have a spell of efficiency that isn’t as good as his usual levels.”
