Enzo Fernandez reveals brutal Cristian Romero taunt to Kylian Mbappe in dramatic World Cup final
Chelsea midfielder Enzo Fernandez has revealed Tottenham star Cristian Romero celebrated directly towards Kylian Mbappe during December’s thrilling World Cup final.
Argentina emerged victorious on penalties in Qatar after a 3-3 draw inside Lusail Stadium to capture their third title.
The South Americans had raced into a two-goal lead at half-time thanks to goals from Lionel Messi and Angel Di Maria, before Mbappe levelled the scores with a stunning brace.
Messi would again put his side into the lead in extra-time before the Frenchman became the first player to score a hat-trick in a World Cup final since Geoff Hurst by scoring a late penalty.
Billed as the greatest final in history, tempers were naturally high. Even after the game, the Paris Saint-Germain forward featured prominently, with Emi Martinez holding a mock minute’s silence for him during wild dressing room celebrations.
Speaking to Argentine outlet TyC Sports, Fernandez has revealed an on-pitch coming together between Romero and Mbappe.
“We argued a bit on the field. I don’t really like to tell what happens. I had said some things, but that remains on the field,” said Fernandez.
“Cuti is crazy, he yelled the goal in his face!”
