Kylian Mbappe and Neymar Jr are two of the most talented soccer players of all time. Mbappe and Neymar have been teammates at Paris Saint-Germain since 2017. The pair enjoy a great relationship both on and off the pitch, and have combined together to score plenty of goals for their club. However, recently, Mbappe was humbled by the Brazilian superstar during a Japanese commercial show a few months ago.
Kylian Mbappe and Neymar Jr traveled along with their PSG teammates to Japan in July 2022 for their pre-season tour. PSG played three matches against Japanese League sides Kawasaki Frontale, Urawa Red Diamonds, and Gamba Osaka. In between their Japan tour, Mbappe and Neymar along with Sergio Ramos managed to appear in a Japanese commercial show, where they took part in a soccer challenge.
The challenge was to hit a soccer ball at twenty moving targets from a distance. Mbappe, who went first, hit fifteen out of the twenty targets. Sergio Ramos went next and managed to hit nineteen out of the twenty targets. Neither Mbappe nor Ramos managed to hit the final target, which was probably the hardest. Finally, Neymar Jr stepped up, and he equaled the former Real Madrid defender’s score of nineteen.
However, Neymar was the only one who managed to hit the final target, which his other teammates failed to do. Although the soccer challenge was meant as a fun segment, the three soccer stars got super competitive, showing their supreme accuracy.
Fans react as Neymar puts a stop to Kylian Mbappé’s laughter
While the video of the soccer challenge has amassed a huge number of views on social media platforms, fans were quick to observe one particular thing. During the soccer challenge, when Neymar was trying to hit the targets, Kylian Mbappe was seen laughing at Neymar. However, the former Barcelona star had the final laugh as he managed to hit the final target which surprised Mbappe.
Mbappe’s reaction to Neymar hitting the target immediately brought out some hilarious fan comments. One fan said, “The way Mbappe’s expression changed, had me rolling on the floor.” Another one said, “Mbappe changes his reaction quickly made me dying.”
One fan appreciated Neymar’s skills, saying “Neymar is one of the most technically talented players in football.” However, one fan even went on to the extent of saying “Mbappe like: ‘don’t make me sell you’.”
Kylian Mbappe and Neymar Jr will both be looking to team up again as PSG enters the business end of the season. PSG will soon face Bayern Munich in February in the round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League.
Neymar and Mbappe, along with Lionel Messi, would definitely be setting their sights on getting PSG their first Champions League title. PSG will undoubtedly be looking for revenge, after losing the 2020 Champions League final to Bayern Munich.
