Maradona: “Mbappe Is the Cavani That Uruguay Missed”

The former Argentine player praised the revelation forward of the French team that has shone in this World Cup

Argentine former soccer player Diego Maradona assured that the French national team “knows what he is playing” when referring to the elimination of Uruguay by France in the quarterfinals of the 2018 World Cup in Russia, adding that the Frenchman Kylian Mbappé is “the (Edinson) Cavani who missed Uruguay. ”

During the “From the hand of the 10” that TeleSUR broadcasts, Maradona insisted that the South American team “was noticed the absence of Cavani”, who did not play because of an injury to his left calf.

According to Maradona, France “found his game” by showing that he knows how to have the ball with what, in his opinion, closed the sides of the court and “forced the Charrúas to split.”

He also praised the strength of the French team that believes he has a well-defined defense and a midfield that knows well what he plays, in addition to highlighting the work of the French figure Kylian Mbappé, whom he referred to as “unmarkable”.

“He went from 0 to 120 (…) he threw a center that nobody came because they do not have the speed of him, it becomes difficult when he faces, he goes in and he’s not afraid,” he said.

Uruguay bid farewell to the World Cup by falling 0-2 to France in the quarterfinals with goals from Raphaël Varane and Antoine Griezmann.
