Mbappe Rejects US$22K World Cup Pay, Donates Wage to Charity

Mbappe scored twice and produced an all-round fearsome display as France beat Argentina 4-3 to seal their spot in the quarter-finals of the World Cup.

The 19-year-old rising star will give his bonus from each match at the tournament to the Premiers de Cordee association, a charity that assists sport-loving children with disabilities.

French teenage sensation Kylian Mbappe is donating his entire World Cup match fees to charity because he feels he should not be paid to play for his country.

Mbappe scored two goals against Argentina in the first knockout game of the World Cup to become the first teenager to do so since Pele in 1958.

Thauvin - who replaced Mbappe in the 89th minute for his first appearance at Russian Federation 2018 - says the 19-year-old's brilliance could scarcely be believed by those on the sidelines. The donation will include the reported £265,000 bonus that the star is in line to earn should France win the tournament.

"As I've already and always said, at a World Cup you have all the top-level players, so it's an opportunity to show what you can do and what your abilities are".

At Mbappe's age, Pogba had just completed a move to Juventus from Manchester United and would not make his France debut until a year later at the age of 20.
