France's footballer Kylian Mbappe was taunted by Argentina fans while he was attending an NBA game in Brooklyn on Monday, Jan. 2.

Kylian Mbappe, the Paris Saint-Germain star and France's World Cup hero, attended the Brooklyn Nets' duel against the San Antonio Spurs at the Barclays Center on Monday, Jan. 2. However, during the game, some Argentine fans noticed Mbappe's presence at the Barclays Center and decided to taunt him by singing the famous Argentine chant 'Muchachos' that became the Argentina national football team's unofficial anthem heading into the 2022 World Cup, MARCA reported.

Mbappe netted a hat-trick in the World Cup final between France and Argentina. During the NBA game, the Nets even showed one of Mbappe's goals on the big screen. Mbappe finished as the top scorer of the World Cup tournament with eight goals and received the Golden Boot.

Meanwhile, Mbappe said that he will never get over the disappointment of losing the World Cup final against Argentina.

“I think I’m never going to get over it,” Mbappe said.

Argentina beat France in the penalty shootout in a pulsating game that was labeled by many as one of the best finals in World Cup history.

Argentina’s remarkable victory over France on Sunday also put an end to a 36-year World Cup drought for the nation. Argentina hadn’t won the FIFA World Cup since Diego Maradona and the team won the title in 1986. Argentina fans are still celebrating their first World Cup trophy since 1986.

Messi, who had declared before the World Cup in Qatar that the 2022 FIFA World Cup would be his last, won the Golden Ball for best player in the tournament. Meanwhile, Martinez was awarded the Golden Glove for best goalkeeper. Enzo Fernandez was adjudged the winner of the Best Young Player award.

Recently, Argentina goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez mocked Mbappe during Argentina’s World Cup parade.

During Argentina’s World Cup parade on Tuesday, Dec. 20, Argentina goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez, who made incredible saves in the nation’s World Cup final victory over France, was seen topless and standing next to Messi and holding a doll with a picture of a crying Mbappe stuck on its head.
