Kylian Mbappe becomes one of the youngest captains of France. He fills in the boot of Lloris who kept the armband for 14 years from 2008 to 2022. Griezmann (117 caps, 42 goals) will be his vice-captain.
Former captain of the team Hugo Lloris announced his retirement from international duties in January after December’s World Cup final defeat to Argentina, leaving the number one spot and captain’s armband open.
Mbappe has cemented his status as one of the best players in world football after his stunning exploits for France at the 2018 World Cup and 2022 Qatar World Cup.
Mbappe joins the likes of Martin Odegaard as one of the youngest captains in Europe.
