'I feel World Cup vibes!' - Mbappe reveling in PSG's run to first Champions League final


Neymar Mbappe PSG

Kylian Mbappe says he is feeling the same vibes as when he won the World Cup with France following Paris Saint-Germain's run to a first ever Champions League final.

Thomas Tuchel's men took the lead with just 13 minutes on the clock when Marqinhos headed home a beautifully flighted Di Maria free-kick from just outside the box.

PSG continued to apply pressure for the remainder of the half, with Mbappe missing a clear chance and Neymar striking the woodwork before the second goal of the game eventually came just before the interval.

Leandro Paredes pounced on a poor pass from the Bundesliga outfit'sgoalkeeper Peter Gulacsi to feed Neymar in the penalty area, whose delightful flick set up Di Maria perfectly to score his 13th goal of the season.

Di Maria grabbed his second assistearly in the second period, as his cross was headed past Gulacsi by Bernat, with the goal standing after a lengthy VAR review confirmed that the Spaniard was onside when the ball was played.

PSG saw out the last half hour of the contest in comfortable fashionand will now look forward to a showpiece encounter against either Bayern Munich or Lyon on Sunday.

When asked how reaching the Champions League final compares to arriving on the same stage at the 2018World Cup in Russia, Mbappe told reporters post-match:"I feel the same vibes because we managed to create a group where everyone knows their importance and everyone do their job.

"We do a lot of activities outside the pitch, maybe it's too much for some but that's how you win titles."

The 21-year-old went on to admit that he thought his season had been ended early when he picked up an injury in the French Cup final on July 24, before explaining how he managed to make a remarkable recovery to feature in both the quarter and semi-finals.

"When I got injured against Saint Etienne, I thought the Champions League was over for me," he said. "But the morning after I told myself I needed to be part of this journey, even if I didn't play, at least to bring my good mood to the team."

Mbappe added on his deadly partnership with Neymar in the PSG attack: "The coach said that we get along very well, and we get along very well on and off the pitch, so I think it’s important for the group too. It is a pleasure to play with a player like Neymar.
