Pelé calls Mbappé a friend and praises him for breaking his World Cup record

Brazilian football legend Pelé thanked French forward Kylian Mbappé for wishing him well and praised the 23-year-old for breaking the Brazilian's goal record at the World Cups before the age of 24.

After receiving reports of Pelé's serious condition, Mbappé posted a tweet, "Pray for the king." According to the media reports, Pelé's body has stopped responding to chemotherapy, which helped the ex-footballer fight cancer. Pelé reassured his fans that his condition has stabilized.

Thank you, Kylian Mbappé. I'm glad you broke another one of my records at this World Cup, my friend!

Mbappé played four games for the national team at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, scoring five goals and providing two assists. After scoring twice against Poland (3-1) in the last 16, the 23-year-old reached nine goals in the World Cup and broke the world record of Pelé, who scored seven goals in the world championships before he turned 24.

The French will play in the quarterfinals against England, which defeated Senegal, 3-0, in the first round of the playoffs. The match between France and England will take place on December 10 at 22:00 GMT+3.
