Euro 2024: You can say what you like – Argentina players slam Mbappe over World Cup comment

Argentina players, Leandro Paredes and Emi Martinez have responded to Kylian Mbappe’s recent comment that the European Championship is a tougher tournament to win than the World Cup.

Both the AS Roma midfielder, Paredes and Aston Villa’s Martinez were part of the Argentina squad that won the World Cup and are preparing to defend their Copa America title in the USA.

France International, Mbappe, who has also won the World Cup, spoke about the difficulty of winning the Euros, having fallen short in his first attempt back in 2021.

Reigning world champions, Argentina, who defeated Mbappe’s France in the final in Qatar in 2022, were having none of it.

Paredes, who played alongside Mbappe at PSG, said, “He also won the World Cup, the Euros I think not yet. We won the Copa America, Finalissima, the World Cup and we know how important and difficult the World Cup is. We think about what we won, let everyone say what they want.”

Argentina goalkeeper Martinez also refuted Kylian Mbappe’s claim, telling journalist Gaston Edul, “There is nothing more difficult than a World Cup.”
