WHAT HAPPENED? Mbappe has returned to PSG less than 72 hours after suffering World Cup final heartache with France. The superstar, who scored a hat-trick in the Qatar showpiece against winners Argentina, touched down in Paris with the rest of the Les Bleus squad for a memorable homecoming before reporting for training with his club on Wednesday morning.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Mbappe will be hoping to put Sunday's defeat to Argentina behind him with a big push for silverware in the second half of the season. PSG are top of the Ligue 1 table and will face Bayern Munich in the last 16 of the Champions League. Together with Lionel Messi, the 24-year-old will be aiming to win Europe's top club prize to make up for his World Cup woe.

DID YOU KNOW? PSG remain unbeaten this season, winning 13 Ligue 1 games and drawing two. That run has put them five points clear of second-placed Lens in the French top flight.
