England assistant manager Steve Holland has identified the player who could pose a major threat to the Three Lions when they clash with France in the quarter-finals at the weekend.
He said England must be wary of the threat of Kylian Mbappe and look for ways to stop the France international.
“I think there are a handful of players on the planet that you need to give special attention to,” Holland told reporters.
“Messi has been one and probably still is."
“You’d have to put Mbappe in that kind of category, as I would suggest."
“We do need to look at trying to avoid leaving ourselves in situations where he is as devastating as we’ve all seen." "We have to try to find a way of avoiding that.”
The Paris Saint-Germain star has already scored five goals in the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, including a double against Poland in the Round of 16.
