Homepage - Entertainment

The Paris Saint-German striker has already proved that he's among the greatest footballers in history, standing in the same league with GOATS like Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo.

In an era dominated by Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, who have played at the greatest level for two decades, hardly any football star can surpass these two legends. However, that perception no longer holds true after the emergence of a new superstar generation, led by the likes of Erling Haaland and inevitably, Kylian Mbappe.

Four years ago, Mbappe, a 19-year-old rising star, burst onto the international stage and emerged as a promising striker with an eye for goal. In the tournament, the teenager grabbed four goals, with many of them showing off his spectacular skill set. And in the end, France won the much-coveted World Cup, a title that even great players like Messi or Ronaldo have never reached.

Four years later, Mbappe is still the leading talisman in an immensely talented French squad hoping to defend its World Cup title. After beating England 2-1 in a thrilling quarter-final, the reigning champions from 2018 will face the tournament dark horse, Marocco, in the next round. And again, Mbappe will carry the whole nation's hope of bringing the trophy home.

Inside Mbappe's rise to superstardom

Born on 20 December 1998, Kylian Mbappe is a French professional footballer who plays as a forward for Paris Saint-Germain and the France national team.

A prolific striker who has the luxurious opportunity to play alongside Lionel Messi and Neymar, Kylian Mbappe is known as renowned for his piercing pace, dribbling abilities, and exceptional finishing skills. According to the Atlantic, his style of play is akin to a dragonfly, which often leaves defenders running forwards, backward, and often spinning around in confusion.

Mbappe began his senior club career in 2015 at Monaco, where he won the Ligue 1 title. Following his superb performances, then 18-year-old Mbappe signed for Paris Saint-Germain on a transfer worth €180 million. The record made him the most expensive teenage footballer in history, and it is totally worth it.

At international level, Mbappe made his senior debut for France in 2017. Then, at the 2018 World Cup in Russia, he became the youngest French footballer to score at a World Cup. And the rest is history, with Mbappe seeking to defend France's title in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
