Experts, fans - you name it, have hailed his outings not to mention 2002 World Cup hero Kaka whose showered the budding superstar with high praise.
"I think the best thing we can say about him is his speed, and how quickly he can run," he said.
"Of course he's not just running because he has very good control when he is running.
"And he is also just 19 years old, but he sometimes seems like he is 35 years old - very mature, controls the game, [makes] good choices."
Kaka added: "I think he's got a very, very good future and to see a 19-year old player playing and performing like he is performing at this World Cup - we are blessed to see something like that."
Mbappe was already tipped for success following his brilliance on the club scene with AS Monaco then for Paris Saint-Germain, last season.
But he's now on the verge of becoming footballing royalty at such a tender age.
His name also remains heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid as the Champions League holders look to fill the void vacated by Cristiano Ronaldo.
