Kylian Mbappe's damning reaction after Olivier Giroud scored his first goal of the game against Bulgaria on Tuesday night has become a talking point on social media amid rumours of unrest in the France squad.
Things took an unexpected turn following their warm-up clash ahead of next week's European Championship opener when a frustrated Giroud accused his teammates of not passing to him in a post-match interview.
The Chelsea striker, who came off the bench to score a late brace against Yasen Petrov's side, said: "Sometimes you make the runs and ball is not arriving. Perhaps we could have found each other better, there it is."
Since taking a not-so-subtle swipe at his teammates, rumours have emerged that Mbappe was so livid about Giroud's outburst that he wanted to go public and make an angry statement in a press conference, according to L'Equipe.
It is unclear whether tensions were high before those comments were made, but footage of Mbappe's reaction after his teammate scored his first goal in the 3-0 win has got people talking.
As you can see in the footage below, a number of France players congratulate the 34-year-old after finding the back of the net, including Paul Pogba and Raphael Varane, but Mbappe appears to walk in the opposite direction.
This was notable on Tuesday night - Paul Pogba, Raphaël Varane (coming from the complete opposite end of the pitch) & Benjamin Pavard the first to congratulate Olivier Giroud for his goal - Kylian Mbappé showed no reaction. https://t.co/DwyTVnwyKk- Get French Football News (@GFFN) June 10, 2021
Former France international Johan Micoud even accused Mbappe of having an 'it's all about you' attitude.
"It's becoming embarrassing. And even when he came off," Micoud said after the game.
"You have just played two warm-up matches, it has gone very well and when he came off the pitch it was as if the team had lost 4-0. His disappointment... at some point, it is not all about you.
