Understand Mbappé’s celebration after his goal in the Cup


After scoring his first goal in France’s match against Poland for the round of 16 of the World Cup, this Sunday (4), Kylian Mbappé, 23, dropped to one knee on the ground, put his right arm behind his back, turned his head down and put his thumb on his nose

The posture, which recalls the famous sculpture “The Thinker”, by Rodin, is a creation of the French striker’s brother, according to GQ magazine.

As a teenager, Ethan Mbappé scored a goal in a Playstation match played against the now Paris Saint-Germain player, stood up to celebrate and improvised the gesture, now used in Qatar.

Mbappé, who asked for his brother’s approval to use his celebration, had used the gesture when celebrating a goal for the French national team against Australia on November 22 and, in the 2021-2022 season of the French Championship, in a PSG match against Lorient.
