Kylian Mbappe, the star striker for France and the highest-paid player in the world, has kept up his impressive play.
The 2022 FIFA World Cup is currently taking place in Qatar, and the young star has continued to enchant the crowd. Since making his competitive debut during the 2018 World Cup in Russia, Mbappe has scored nine goals.
He has now eclipsed Pele in terms of the most World Cup goals scored by a male player before turning 24 thanks to his two goals against Poland.
Hugo Lloris, France’s top goalkeeper, tied Lilian Thuram’s record for most appearances for the French national team in history with 142 during the game.
The French national team’s top goal scorer, Olivier Giroud, replaced Thiery Henry in that position. At the ongoing Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup, the former Chelsea player accomplished this milestone during the Round of 16 matches against Poland. In the final seconds of the first half, Giroud scored the game’s first goal.
