You have to say that’s magnifique
The French teenager has been exciting to watch during Russia 2018.
Kylian Mbappe has been one of stars of the World Cup, playing a major role in France’s run to the final.
Here, Press Association Sport looks at some of the 19-year-old’s most memorable moments in Russia.
Winner against Peru
Mbappe became France’s youngest scorer in a major tournament when he tapped home to settle a compelling group game against Peru and secure France’s place in the last 16. The youngster has been tipped for big things for some time now and this marked his arrival on the grandest stage. His pace and link-up play with Antoine Griezmann were a constant threat to the South Americans.

Moments later he was at it again, racing on to a through-ball from Olivier Giroud to round off a rapid counter-attack with another clinical low finish, stroking home from just inside the area.
Neat flick against Belgium
Mbappe may not have scored in the semi-final victory over Belgium but he still caught the eye, most notably when he created a chance with a brilliant piece of skill. The Paris St Germain star had his back to goal when the ball came to him but he had the control and awareness to play in Giroud with a superb flick behind.
