Kylian Mbappe Is The Youngest Player To Score In A World Cup Final Since Pele

Kylian Mbappe Is The Youngest Player To Score In A World Cup Final Since Pele

What a moment for this incredibly talented young footballer.

Two and a half years ago, Kylian Mbappé could only dream about becoming a professional but tonight, the 19-year-old is a World Cup winner and has scored a goal in a World Cup final. Absolutely unbelievable.

Let's put his situation into even more perspective.

Six years after this 13-year-old was pictured in his bedroom surrounded by a Cristiano Ronaldo shrine, he is realising his dream of becoming the most exciting prospect in world football.

Mbappe's father told France Football back in 2016 that his son used to "spend hours watching videos of Ronaldo on the internet" and now the Paris Saint-Germain forward is tearing teams apart on the biggest stage of them all.

At the age of 19 years and 192 days, the French star is the fourth youngest player to score in a World Cup knock-out game, after Pelé, Michael Owen & Julian Green.

In fact, he is the youngest player to score in a World Cup final since the legend, Pele.

It may pale in comparison to his final heroics against Croatia, but only two teenagers have scored two or more goals in a World Cup knockout stage game - Kylian Mbappe and that man again, Pele.

Even away from the pitch, the youngster is making a real impact.

The 2017 Golden Boy award winner is entitled to £17,000 plus bonuses for every game he plays, but being a patron of the Preiers de Cordees association, a charity which looks to organise sports activities for children with disabilities, he doesn't deem it to be necessary and so has made the wonderful gesture, as per L'Equipe.

Now that really is a humble act of kindness from Mbappe.

What next for the 19-year-old? A Ballon d'Or perhaps?
