:rotating_light::rotating_light::studio_microphone:| Lionel Messi on Kylian Mbappé saying that EURO’s are more difficult than the World Cup:

“He also said that the South American teams didn’t have the competition of the Europeans. Everyone values what they play.

“The EURO’s is very important, but it leaves out Argentina, 3-time world champion; Brazil, 5-time world champion; Uruguay, two-time world champion. There are many world champions left out to say that the Euro is the most difficult, right?

“In the World Cup, the best teams are there, all the world champions are generally there. That’s why everyone wants to be world champion.”
