Kylian Mbappé’s celebration with his arms crossed on his chest and two thumbs up was born after a goal conceded. But not in the field! Not on PlayStation. He was playing FIFA against his little brother Ethan when planted a target, controller in hand.
Mbappé junior then stood up in front of Kylian and improvised this celebration to welcome him. Kylian he was therefore inspired by his little brother. At the end of the match, Ethan said to Kylian, “You could do it in one game!”
