The teenager was given the high-stakes opportunity to spotlight his talent in the closing stages of the victorious 3:1 match against FC Metz under the watchful eye of coach Luis Enrique.

With his brief debut came a concise interview, during which the young player discussed his swirling emotions.

The conversation flowed with ease. Presnel Kimpembe is a familiar face to Kylian Mbappe, both in the Paris Saint-Germain locker room and within the French national team. He had also made Ethan's acquaintance prior to their joint screen time on the club's television channel.

Whether the triumvirate will ever share the pitch remains to be seen. Ethan Mbappe is touted as an emerging star in the Paris Saint-Germain lineup, while Presnel Kimpembe is eager to make a sporting comeback after several months on the sidelines. As for Kylian Mbappe, rumours constantly link him with a transfer to one of the Spanish football titans.
