The 2018 World Cup winners and the winners of the very first Nations League faced each other in the Stade de France.
It promised to be delicious – but it was anything but.
Both teams appeared to cancel each other out, resulting in a 0-0 draw.
No country had a weaker line-up and France played against Mbappe, Antoine Griezmann and Paul Pogba.
Portugal went with a front line, including Ronaldo, Joao Felix and Bernardo Silva – as well as Bruno Fernandes.
Of the two teams, perhaps the greatest pressure is on Mbappe and Ronaldo.
The two are widely considered to be some of the best players in the world.
Only 21-year-old Mbappe is considered the top talent to help France after winning the World Cup, as well as a multitude of trophies in Paris Saint-Germain.
While the 35-year-old Ronaldo is at the other end of his career – and an incredible one – and claims countless Champions League, Premier League and La Liga titles as well as many trophies.
And Mbappe had nothing but respect for the Juventus striker and used social media to call him “Idol”.
The post on Twitter generated over 250,000 likes and 50,000 retweets.
The Frenchman has spoken in the past about his admiration for Ronaldo.
“He’s a childhood hero and it was amazing to meet him when I was visiting Valdebebas,” he said.
“But I’m a competitor and a person who is very competitive and all I want to do is win, win, win. So it doesn’t really matter who stands in front of us, we want to win. ”
“I admired him when I was younger, but that ended. Now I go to the Bernabeu to play and win.
“You can learn a lot from someone who has won five Ballons d’Or. He’s a great player, but I have her here too.
“Neymar is here and I think he’s very similar and practically on the same level as Cristiano Ronaldo.”
