Kylian Mbappe's individual highlights against Bayern Munich makes for incredible viewing and proves he's a generational talent.
He scored a stunning brace and was a constant threat down the middle, tormenting Bayern's defence all night with his speed and trickery.
The 22-year-old not only showed off his deadly finishing, but also his brilliant hold up play as he brought his teammates into action in the final third.
The French phenom proved he could lead the line as he put on a masterclass against the defending champions.
One Twitter user reacted to his performance by tweeting: "Kid is on the way to completing football."
Another added: "The fact he's 22 and achieved what he has is frightening."

Speaking about his 'Man of the Match' outing, Mbappe said: "The coach wanted me to close the passing lines on Kimmich with Neymar and that I run deep to overcome the Bayern block and make them run because they don't like that."
On the second leg, he added: "It worked well today. The second leg? To start we need to play well against Strasbourg this weekend.
"Then we will need to attack with confidence, even though we are facing a great team.
"This is the Champions League, there are only great teams."
