Responding to the image rights dispute with the French Football Federation, Kylian Mbappe said he doesn’t mind being in the spotlight for a good cause.

On Tuesday, September 20, the Paris Saint-Germain striker flatly refused to take part in a photoshoot with the France squad due to a disagreement over image rights (via Goal). The player disputed that image rights standards for French players were unfair. The French Football Federation have since revised the terms of the deal which pleases Mbappe.

Mbappe has won the image rights ‘battle’ with the FFF ahead of the World Cup.

He knows his worth.

The day after the dispute, PSG no. 7 revealed he was happy with the result, saying he didn’t mind leading the charge on behalf of his teammates. The French striker told L’Equipe (via Goal):

“Yes [I’m happy with what happened this week]. It’s not just me who found agreements. The whole team wanted him. Afterwards, I don’t mind being on the front of the stage if it’s beneficial for my teammates. Being criticized will not change the way I play and live. If it helps the band, I don’t mind. I think the whole group is happy.

Kylian Mbappe steals the show as France beat Austria in UEFA Nations League

World champions France returned to UEFA Nations League action with a clash against League A Group 1 rivals Austria at the Stade de France on Thursday night (September 22). Having failed to win any of their previous four Group 1 fixtures, France were eager to get maximum points on the board on Thursday. Thanks to goals from Mbappe and Olivier Giroud, Les Bleus secured a 2-0 victory against Austria and moved up to third place in the table.

Mbappe opened the scoring for France in the 56th minute. Hanging on to a pass from Giroud, he raced upfield, evaded a sea of ​​Austrian defenders and headed home with aplomb from the center of the box. As well as scoring a fantastic goal, the PSG superstar created three chances, completed seven dribbles, won eight duels on the ground and made three recoveries.

France will play their last Nations League Group 1 game, which also happens to be their last match before the World Cup in November, against Denmark on Sunday 25 September.
