France and Tottenham skipper, Hugo Lloris, believes his international teammate Kylian Mbappe is coping well with his status as one of the best players in the business. 


The teen sensation was an indispensable member of France's World Cup winning squad and has now carried his form into the new season with Paris Saint-Germain. He has scored eight goals in just five Ligue 1 appearances - four of which came against Lyon on Sunday. 



He also was named on the 30-man shortlist for the Ballon d'Or, and Lloris admired the way he's been coping with such sky-high expectations. 


"Obviously, Kylian has a brand new status now," he said at a media conference ahead of France's friendly against Iceland on Thursday, as quoted by ​FourFourTwo.


"Even though he has done great things in Ligue 1 and the Champions League, the World Cup gave him a new dimension in the world's eyes. He is adjusting just fine to this new status; we all know his great potential."



"He proved that in the second half against Lyon. I have not seen the first half, just the second one. It is not easy to score four goals in Ligue 1. I'm sure he can repeat these kinds of performances all over again."


Following the friendly against Ireland, France resume their UEFA Nations League campaign by hosting Germany on the 17th of October.
