After the final lost by France (3-3 after extra time, 4-2 victory for the Argentinians on penalties), Tom Brady paid tribute to Kylian Mbappé during an interview he gave to the Let’s Go podcast. .
Brady identifies with Mbappé
“I have a lot more empathy for guys who invest a lot of time and energy and things don’t go their way. It’s not just about a football player. It can happen to anyone in their job. This could happen to a person who works at UPS (the equivalent of the post office in the United States, editor’s note). It could happen to someone who works in the military. It could happen to a person who works in a store. This is what happened to Kylian Mbappé, who scored three goals in the (final) of the World Cup. And you know what ? The team (of France) did not win”said Brady.
” That’s life. You can’t always win and no one has the guarantee that he will win because no one knows what will happen to him in life. Every day is a new day and you always have to try to make it the best day possible”Brady added.
Since his hat-trick in the final, Kylian Mbappé has received tributes from many athletes around the world, including that of French basketball player Victor Wembanyama.
