Mbappe eager for Griezmann pairing

Brazil ladies ‘in harmony and ready’ for World Cup challenge

Teenage sensation Kylian Mbappe is hopeful of playing alongside Antoine Griezmann for France on Saturday.

Les Bleus face Bulgaria needing a win to retain top spot in Group A in 2018 World Cup qualifying.

And the young Paris Saint-Germain striker, who played alongside the Atletico Madrid man for 59 minutes in the 0-0 draw with Luxembourg last Sunday, is eager to build on that introduction.

Mbappe and Griezmann should play either side of Arsenal forward Alexandre Lacazette, with an excited Mbappe saying: "We're two intelligent players, who can play with others. 

"We're also complementary. Antoine is more a player who drops off, who takes part in the build-up play. 

"I can bring that ability to go deep that Antoine perhaps doesn't have and that he compensates for with other qualities."
