France’ attacking sensation Kylian Mbappe stole the headlines after his terrorizing of Argentine defence on Saturday. France beat Argentina 4-3 in which the wiz-kid scored a brace. Mbappe once again won the hearts when he declared that he would donate his international salary.
Kylian said that he feels he should not be paid to represent his country. Well, isn’t that just so true?
While Kylian Mbappe revealed he will donate every penny of his international salary.
In a recent interview, FA chief Martin Glenn revealed that many of the England players like Harry Kane, Dele Alli, and Gary Cahill give their international salaries for charity.
He said,” I get absolutely indignant about the suggestion that players when they play for England, don't really care because it's not anything like my experience. They don't take a penny in match fees, they give it to charity.”

Glenn further added, "When we get them to close their eyes - this is an exercise we've actually done - and ask them what's the one medal you would love to win, they all come back with World Cup or Euros, with respect to winning a Premier League medal. There is real hunger there. If anyone's got a scintilla of a thought that England players don't care about playing for England, lose it from your mind right now, they care passionately."
England will take on Colombia in their last 16 match of the World Cup on Tuesday. England needs to beat Colombia to reach their first World Cup Quarter-finals since 2006 when they beat Ecuador.
With that pride and dedication to their country, let’s hope they do beat Colombia.

While biggies like Germany, Argentina, Spain and Portugal are eliminated early, England has a good chance of winning this World Cup. Putting aside Spain, Germany, Lionel Messi’s Argentina and Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal were the two major reasons for England’s downfall in previous tournaments.
Colombia, on the other hand, provides no such threat to England, they will surely give England a decent completion. And citing the mood of the current World Cup, England should be wary of underdogs, Colombia.
In the previous meeting, England had beat Colombia and they should be looking to repeat it again this time around in Moscow. Also, England has a good chance of avoiding big names like Brazil, Uruguay, France and Belgium until it’s the final of the World Cup.
Let’s just say, ‘It’s coming home.'
