In the final of the FIFA World Cup 2022, there was a very exciting match between France and Argentina. Argentina won the final by defeating France 4-2 in a penalty shootout after finishing the match 3-3. Since 1986, Argentina has won the FIFA World Cup under the captaincy of Lionel Messi. 

 At the same time, French player Kylian Mbappe is highly praised in this match. Mbappe created excitement in the match by scoring a hat-trick of goals and tried his best to win his team France, but he failed. 

Meanwhile, many types of claims are being made about Mbappe on social media. Some social media users are calling Mbappe a Muslim. A verified user named Hend F Q (@LadyVelvet_HFQ) posted a list of Muslim players from France, in which she also wrote mbappe’s name.

Fact Check:

The DFRAC team did a simple search on Google to investigate Killian Mbappe’s claim that he was a Muslim. We found Mbappe’s Wikipedia page. According to the information given on this page, Mbappe believes in Christianity. 

In a video posted on social media, Mbappe can be seen describing himself as a Christian in response to a question asked by school children related to religion.

Conclusion:

It is clear from the fact check of DFRAC that the religion of French football player Kylian Mbappe is Christian. However, his mother is of Algerian origin and she is a Muslim. Therefore, the claim made by social media users is wrong.
