Speaking to reporters at the FIFA Council meeting this Tuesday in Amsterdam, French Football Federation President Noël Le Graët confirmed that PSG attacker Kylian Mbappé has been pre-selected for France for the upcoming summer Olympic Games.
“Mbappé is on a pre-list of 80 players for the Olympic Games, produced by Sylvain Ripoll. That list will then become 50, before becoming 18 + 4 reserves. He has the age to be able to go (U23). Like all the young players of his age who are talented, he is therefore on the list… I met with Nasser (Al-Khelaifi). I asked him how Mbappé was going. He said to me: “Very good.” That’s where we are.”
“In general, club presidents feel that the dates (of the Olympic Games) are not particularly good. It is like that.”
