Kylian Mbappe’s father reveals why striker dumped Cameroon to play for France

The father of France striker Kylian Mbappe has recounted the events that led to his son being forced to play for France rather than Cameroon.

Mbappe was born in Paris to a Cameroonian father, Wilfried, and an Algerian mother, but he had made efforts to play senior national team football for his father’s Central African country.

Back in 2018, Wilfried alleged that a member of the Cameroon FA requested some money before his son could make the Indomitable Lions’ squad.



He said via Cameroon Concord News:

“At first, I wanted my son to play for Cameroon but, someone at the Cameroon Football Federation charged a sum of money that I didn’t have to make him play. The French didn’t charge anything.”
