The player who could pose the biggest threat to the Three Lions when they play France in the quarterfinals at the weekend has been named by England assistant manager Steve Holland.
He advised England to be cautious of Kylian Mbappe’s threat and look for strategies to stop the France international.
Holland told reporters, “I think there are a few players on the planet that you need to give special attention to.
Messi was one and likely is one today.
“Mbappe would have to be included in that kind of category, in my opinion.
“We do need to consider trying to keep ourselves out of circumstances where he can be as devastating as we have all seen. We need to try to figure out how to prevent that.
The star forward for Paris Saint-Germain has already scored five goals in the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup, including a pair of goals against Poland in the Round of 16.
