Mbappe to Be World’s Best, Says Poland Coach

DOHA - Poland coach Czeslaw Michniewicz admitted his team had no answer to Kylian Mbappe after the Paris Saint-Germain forward guided France to a 3-1 victory in the FIFA World Cup round of 16.
Mbappe scored two second-half goals and provided the pass for Olivier Giroud’s opener as France advanced to the quarterfinals.
“There is no recipe to stop Mbappe in the form that he’s in now,” Michniewicz told a news conference.
“He’s a fantastic player and he harmed us. But I’m cheering for him. He’s a real star. Now we have (Lionel) Messi, (Cristiano) Ronaldo and (Robert) Lewandowski but somebody is going to take over from them and I think that Mbappe will be that player in the coming years.”
Michniewicz was disappointed at bowing out of the tournament but said Poland should be proud of reaching knockout stage for the first time since 1986.
