Belgium winger Nacer Chadli has praised Kylian Mbappe ahead of Tuesday’s World Cup semifinal match Vs France
Nacer Chadli scored a dramatic late winning goal to seal a 3-2 victory over Japan in the last 16, started the quarterfinal success against Brazil and is likely to start against Les Bleus with Thomas Meunier suspended.
Speaking at a press conference on Sunday, Chadli admitted that the Paris Saint-Germain star’s meteoric rise is perhaps only equalled by that of Lionel Messi.
“What Mbappe is doing at his age, I have never seen before,” said the 28-year-old. “Except, perhaps, Messi.
“Mbappe is hard to stop — he is fast, has plenty of quality, and he is very technical.”
