WHAT HAPPENED? Fresh off from featuring in France's 2-0 win over Ireland, Paris Saint-Germain's superstar forward decided to take in a bit of rugby as the World Cup got underway on Friday night. Hosts France got the tournament off to a winning start, beating New Zealand 27-13 with a packed Stade de France watching on. The striker was in the crowd alongside international team-mates Antoine Griezmann, Dayot Upamecano and Ousmane Dembele and didn't look too familiar with the sport, with his very delayed reaction to some points scored caught on camera.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Whether Mbappe chose to be there or had to be there, it's little surprise that he looks so confused. No doubt the forward dedicates every waking moment to football, and it's likely the 24-year-old has time to soak in any other sports - especially rugby, which can be a little confusing for those new to it.

WHAT NEXT FOR MBAPPE? After taking in a little bit of rugby on Friday, Mbappe's attention will be turning back to football as France take on Germany on September 12.
