Qatar, which is also a majority shareholder of PSG, wanted to have the French star at the Doha Exhibition Center, at a time when his future is still uncertain and he is being linked to Real Madrid, who came close to signing him in August 2021.

Why isn't Mbappé going?

However, Mbappé argued that it was not his place to be at the ceremony, as he is not captain of the 1998 and 2018 World Cup-winning side and has commitments with his current club, which plays Lorient in Ligue 1 on Sunday.

The French prodigy has just given a new exhibition with France, in Tuesday's friendly win over South Africa (5-0). He scored two goals and now has 26 goals for the national team. At the same 23 years of age as Mbappé, Henry, France's top scorer with 51 goals, had a total of eight goals.
