“Mbappe is an absolute gold medalist and I doubt he has slept since the World Cup final because it’s rare to find yourself on the losing side after scoring four goals in a World Cup. That’s what happened to him.
“He won the World Cup at 19, he won the World Cup final at 23, so the world is at his feet.” Lionel Messi finally won his most coveted trophy, Ganguly feels it’s “deserving” that the Argentinian maestro won the cup on his last attempt.
“I think Messi deserves[to win]his last World Cup. At 35, he ends his World Cup career with a trophy. It shows that no matter how good you are, you are still great. We have to fight for years to win the World Cup.
