Raphinha has responded to Kylian Mbappe’s claims that the Euros are harder than the World Cup by reminding the Frenchman who beat them in the 2022 final.

In an interview, Mbappe noted that France had not won the European Championships in 24 years, which is something he will be looking to change this year.

That observation then led to him saying, “The Euros is a difficult competition, more than a World Cup. All the teams know each other, and the style of soccer is similar. Group stages are difficult.”

However, Brazil’s Raphinha was not happy with the 25-year-old’s comparison, pointing out that Argentina prevented them from winning the World Cup in 2022.

“Unfortunately for him and fortunately for us, he lost a World Cup against a South American team,” Raphinha said in a press conference ahead of the Copa America.
