Mbappé among the greats

A FIFA World Cup winner at just 19, Kylian Mbappé continues to astound the football world.

With four goals, including one in the 4-2 win over Croatia, and named the tournament's best young player, Mbappé shone on each of his outings in Russia. Clinical and creative, the Paris Saint-Germain forward impressed the entire football world over the course of a month.

By featuring in France's opening game against Australia on 16 June, the tricolore number 10 became - aged just 19 years and six months - the youngest France international to play major tournament football. Five days later, he scored the only goal in the win over Peru to become Les Bleus' youngest-ever major tournament scorer.

The Paris-born prodigy wasn't finished there. In the Last 16 against Argentina, he scored twice, the first time a player so young had achieved the feat since Pele against Sweden in the 1958 competition. Needless to say, he was named man of the match.

Against Uruguay and Belgium, Mbappé didn't set a new record, but did get praise from such esteemed figures as Carles Puyol and Rio Ferdinand. But in the final, he again drew parallels with Pele, who had scored in the 1958 final at 17 years, 8 months, provoking praise from the Brazilian legend himself on social media. Bravo Kylian!
