Kylian Mbappé : Football’s Next Big Thing by qwenu: 4:37pm On Feb 14
Ever since his standout performance with Monaco in the 2016-2017 season, Kylian Mbappé has remained relevant and consistent in the club and the national team.

Mbappé is just 20 years old yet he has trod the path of legends, matched, and set records. Only a phenomenon can do that.

The Statistics Build up of Mbappe

In the 2015-2016 season, at the tender age of 16, Mbappé made his professional debut for Monaco, making him the youngest in the club’s history after breaking the record of Thierry Henry whose debut was at 21.

Mbappé did not score his first goal for Monaco until February 2016 and when did, he shattered Henry’s record and became the youngest first team goal scorer at the age of 17, in the club’s history.

In the 2016-2017, Mbappé finally established himself in Monaco as a first team regular. All through that season, his team felt his impact, as he went on to help them secure their first League One title, for the first time in 17 years. He also led Monaco to the semi-final, where they lost to Juventus 4-1 on aggregate. He scored the only goal in that match.

Altogether, in that season, Mbappe had a brilliant performance and capped it with 26 goals in all competitions. Immediately, this caught the attention of Paris Saint Germain (PSG), who signed him on loan for a large fee that made him the most expensive teenager in the world.

Since Mbappé moved to PSG in the 2017-2018 season, he has matured in his game. Despite the fact that stars with great football pedigrees stud the club’s attack, he still finds a way to make himself an indispensable part of the first team.

During the World Cup in Russia, Mbappé stunned the world with a sterling performance that helped the French National team clinched the trophy for the first time in 10 years. After his two goals against Argentina, he became the second teenager after Pelé in 1958 to score two goals in a World Cup match.

Mbappé’s goal in the final against Croatia also made him the second teenager to score in the final of a World Cup match. At the end of the competition after scoring 4 goals, he won the FIFA World Cup Best Young Player Award.

This season alone, Mbappé has scored 18 goals... Read full article: https://qwenu.com/2019/02/14/kylian-mbappe-footballs-next-big-thing/
