Kylian Mbappe and Achraf Hakimi reignited their friendship as they watched Brooklyn Nets beat San Antonio Spurs together after World cup heartbreak.
Brooklyn Nets played the San Antonio Spurs at the Barclays Center on Monday, and Kevin Durant helped his team to record 12 victories in a row. They beat Spurs 139 to 103.
Following France’s second-place result at the just concluded 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, football superstar Kylian Mbappe attended the event.
Mbappe and PSG teammate Achraf Hakimi were seen watching the festivities from a seat courtside at the Barclays Center.
A few weeks have passed since Mbappe’s World Cup run came to an emotional conclusion in the Final against Argentina and Lionel Messi.
But the 24-year-old’s participation in the competition was unquestionably remarkable.
Days after the tournament in Qatar, the French sensation returned to PSG. He and his French club just suffered an upset 3-1 loss to Lens.
Recall that Mbappe and Hakimi put their friendship aside when France and Morocco clashed in the semi-final of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. At the end of the day, France won 2-0 to end Morocco’s historic run in the tournament.
But the two PSG stars have put the World Cup experience behind them and have resumed their friendship in full force.
Mbappe seems to be taking a break and is currently in the US for a brief vacation. The PSG forward selected a fantastic NBA game to watch.
As Kevin Durant led his team to a very impressive 12th straight victory, Mbappe decided to watch one of the finest players in the game.
With averages of 29.2 points on 58.2 percent shooting, 7.4 rebounds, and 5.1 assists over his previous 10 games, KD has been on quite the run lately.
There is no doubt that he was the driving force behind Brooklyn’s explosive run.
The Nets had 24 wins and 12 defeats going into the game on Monday, which gave them the second-best record in the Eastern Conference.
They entered the encounter with Spurs having only 1.5 games behind the league-leading Boston Celtics.
French professional footballer Kylian Mbappé Lottin (born December 20, 1998) plays forward for Ligue 1 team Paris Saint-Germain and the France national team.
He is regarded as one of the top players in the world and is well known for his shooting, dribbling, and quickness.
Mbappé started his professional club career in 2015 by playing for Monaco, where he won the Ligue 1 championship. He was born in Paris and reared in the nearby town of Bondy.
Mbappé became the second-most expensive player and most expensive adolescent player in 2017 when he signed for Paris Saint-Germain for an eventual permanent move of €180 million. He was 18 years old at the time.
He is the second-highest goalscorer in the club’s history and has won four Ligue 1 championships and three Coupes de France there.
In the 2019–20 season, he assisted PSG in winning the domestic quadruple and guided the team to its first-ever Champions League Final.
Achraf Hakimi Mouh, a professional football player for both the Morocco national team and Ligue 1 club Paris Saint-Germain, was born on November 4, 1998.
His primary position is right-back. He is recognized as one of the top right-backs in football, known for his pace, runs, and goal-scoring prowess.
Hakimi graduated from the youth academy of Real Madrid. In 2016, he joined Real Madrid Castilla, and in 2017, after spending a short time with the main squad, he was promoted.
He was sent on a two-year loan to Borussia Dortmund of the Bundesliga, where he won the DFL-Supercup in 2019.
Mbappe and Hakimi bromance
Hakimi and Mbappe have a lot in common outside of sport because they are both highly family-oriented people and are only six weeks apart in age.
They frequently collaborate on the field; for example, Hakimi credited Mbappe with an assist in September’s 2-1 victory over Juventus in the UEFA Champions League.
Speaking about accomplishments, the two frequently engage in distinctive joint celebrations.
Mbappe and Hakimi had a previous on-field confrontation before they became close friends.
PSG and Borussia Dortmund faced off in the Round of 16 of the Champions League in February 2020.
The Germans won that match 2-1 with Hakimi starting for Dortmund and Mbappe for PSG.
Mbappe and Hakimi would only briefly cross paths during PSG’s 2-0 victory in the second leg. The former player was only deployed as a substitute.
