Can We Please Talk About Kylian Mbappe's 'Genius' Pass/Turn Against Belgium

He never fails to amaze, even on the biggest of stages.

Kylian Mbappe has officially picked up the newly named 'pass of the tournament' award during France's semi-final win against Belgium on Tuesday night.

In a moment that left viewers stunned, the world's most expensive teenager bamboozled Vincent Kompany in the penalty area when he dragged the ball back from a Blaise Matuidi pass, and then offloaded a 'back pass' of his own.

With one swift movement. his pass somehow fell to the feet of teammate Olivier Giroud. It was so elegantly done. It was like a piece of art had genuinely come to life.

If you think I'm over-exaggerating, then just watch the following sequence and tell me I'm wrong.

As you can imagine, social media lost their sh*t and proceeded to tweet vigorously about Mbappe's stunning pass:

I could actually watch Mbappe's pass over and over, and over again.

Take a bow.
