The international break is now history after last night’s matches, which have the Real Madrid fans eagerly anticipating the return of club competitions.
The French national team secured a 4-1 victory over Scotland in a friendly match, in which Didier Deschamps fielded his best players and opted for a double pivot with Eduardo Camavinga and Aurélien Tchouaméni.
However, the Real Madrid number 12 unexpectedly became the center of attention at the start of the game, as he “gifted” a goal to the British team in the 10th minute.
The French midfielder unnecessarily risked a back pass inside the penalty area, only to deliver it to Billy Gilmour, who took advantage of the opportunity and scored against Mike Maignan.
As expected, this mistake by Eduardo Camavinga resulted in heavy criticism, although he had an excellent performance at the Pierre-Mauroy stadium, where France ultimately secured a 4-1 victory.
One of those who reprimanded the Cabinda-born player for his action was Kylian Mbappé, who did not hesitate to have a conversation with him during halftime.
“Brother, don’t play the ball backwards without looking up,” Mbappé expressed to Camavinga after his serious error in the Scottish team’s opening goal.
Mbappé’s intervention was intense, but the midfielder understood the frustration of his teammates and Didier Deschamps himself, as such mistakes should not occur at the elite level.
It is not uncommon for players to have heated discussions on the pitch or in the dressing room during halftime. These discussions often arise from the passion and desire to win, as well as the high expectations placed on players at the top level of the sport.
In this case, Mbappé’s reaction to Camavinga’s mistake can be seen as a sign of his leadership qualities and his desire to push his teammates to perform at their best. As one of the key figures in the French national team and a star player at Real Madrid, Mbappé understands the importance of minimizing errors and maintaining a high level of performance.
It is worth noting that Camavinga is still a young player, only 18 years old, and he has already shown great potential in his performances for both Rennes and the French national team. This mistake should not overshadow his talent and potential, but rather serve as a learning experience for him to grow and improve as a player.
The incident between Mbappé and Camavinga highlights the intensity and pressure that players face at the highest level of football. It also emphasizes the importance of communication and accountability within a team, as players hold each other responsible for their actions on the pitch.
As the club competitions resume, it will be interesting to see how Camavinga responds to this incident and whether he can bounce back from his mistake. The young midfielder has shown resilience in the past, and with the support and guidance of his teammates and coaching staff, he can continue to develop into a top-class player.
