Kylian Mbappe equaled the record of the French national team, which lasted up to 63 years. To date, its author has been Just Fontaine. In 1958, in a match for the bronze medal at the World Championships with Germany, he scored four goals, and the French won in a ratio of 6: 3. Fontaine also became the top scorer in the World Cup, scoring as many as 13 goals.
Mbappe also became the first player in France since October 11, 1985 to score three goals with Tricolor in an official match. Then Dominic Rochetto did it.
The excellent Mbappe game was appreciated by journalists. From the prestigious daily newspaper L’Equipe, he received his dream rating of 10. Join a small group of eleven players who succeeded in this play.
Despite his shooting performances, Mbappe, with four strokes, ranks only 23rd among the most effective players in a World Cup qualifier. Memphis Depay is in the lead with 11 goals, and Robert Lewandowski is in second place (eight goals).
