There is no doubt that Kylian Mbappe will be at the top of world football for years to come.

At just 20 years old, Mbappe has put in a number of incredible performances in his short career as a professional footballer.

He's already scored 83 times in his career, including 31 goals in 35 games for Paris Saint-Germain this season.

He was also instrumental as France were crowned 2018 World Cup winners.

However, while his ability is unquestionable, he's starting to get a reputation as a 'diver'.

Mbappe produced an embarrassing dive and was rightfully booked against Marseille last weekend.

But has Mbappe learned his lesson? Sadly, it appears he hasn't.

France cruised to a 4-1 victory over Moldova on Friday night as they got their European Qualifiers campaign off to a winning start.

Mbappe got himself on the scoresheet as he found the back of the net with three minutes remaining.

However, with France cruising to a comfortable victory, Mbappe was then booked for diving with the game in stoppage time.

Mbappe rounded the goalkeeper but threw himself to ground without any contact.

Watch it below:

That's just embarrassing from Mbappe. The fact he even tried to protest his innocence makes it even worse.

Mbappe may be young, but he's starting to create an unwanted reputation for diving.

Let's hope he learns from these mistakes and cuts diving out of his game.

Jose Mourinho is one of many who have lauded Mbappe in recent times as he called him the most valuable player in football.

"For a player like Mbappe, when you speak about the future, you don't need to say what he's going to be like in five years' time, in 10 years' time," Mourinho told beIN Sports, per Goal.

"Just focus on now. He's absolutely incredible.

"I think going by his age and [and considering] the age of Cristiano, of Messi, [both] over 30, Neymar is 27... when you go to the market level and age is also a factor, I think he's the most valuable player in the world.

"In a hypothetical transfer, he's the most expensive player in football now.

"In terms of his qualities, [he is] unbelievable. One word is enough. It means everything."
