Kylian Mbappe comes in for flak for “Neymar like acting”

Young French star Kylian Mbappe has come under fire for “acting like Neymar” during Les Bleus’ quarterfinal against Argentina. Mbappe was involved in an incident with Cristian Rodriguez that saw the former go to the ground theatrically, and referee Pitana chose to give both players yellow cards.

Some have put this down to Neymar’s influence on Mbappe, with the two currently at the same club- Paris Saint-Germain.

Mbappe could’ve ended up meeting Neymar in the semifinals if Brazil had beaten Belgium, but the latter lost to the Red Devils instead.
