“I think it is exactly the same on Saturday. He’s a tool in their armoury that is very good, but there are other good players and we can’t underestimate them.
[They have] players that have won big titles, won World Cups. So OK, he [Mbappe] is a great player, we know that – that is why all of the questions are about him,” said the England player.
“But let’s not forget about Olivier Giroud, who has scored countless goals for France and in the Premier League. Ousmane Dembele, who for me is just as good on the other wing and a very tricky player. And then you have Antoine Griezmann – these players can cause you a problem,” he added.
