PSG forward and France captain Kylian Mbappe has been called up by head coach Didier Deschamps to take part in Les Bleus' next two qualifiers for UEFA Euro 2024 which are scheduled to take place in mid-June and in parallel to the UEFA Nations League finals.

France will face Gibraltar on June 16th at Portugal's Estádio do Algarve before hosting Greece at the Stade de France on June 19th. Both games pertain to the group stage of the qualification portion of the next Euro 2024, belonging to MD3 and MD4.

After getting named captain of the France senior international squad last March, Mbappe led his nation to a couple of victories over the Netherlands (4-0, scoring 2 goals and assisting one more) on Mar. 24th and against the Republic of Ireland (1-0) on Mar. 27th.

No need to mention, obviously, that Mbappe already carried France all the way to their second consecutive World Cup final back in December. In the 2022 Qatar WC, the European side lost to South America finest Argentina in a matchup for the ages that only a tense penalty shootout could decide in favor of Lionel Messi's nation.

Mbappe scored more goals in the WC final (three, albeit two from the penalty spot) than he has bagged in the following two Euro qualifier games against the Netherlands and Rep. of Ireland (two combined).
