Kylian Mbappe will surely win the Ballon d’Or one day.
When Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are both coming to the end of their careers, the French forward may well be widely regarded as the world’s best player.
Mbappe has already achieved so much during his short career and the scary thing is, he’s getting better and better.
The World Cup winner was in action for Paris Saint-Germain against Lyon in the Coupe de France on Wednesday night – and he scored a quite magnificent solo goal to put the visitors 3-1 up at the Groupama Stadium.
After intercepting the ball deep inside his own half, Mbappe brilliantly skipped past one Lyon player with a couple of stepovers before busting towards the penalty area.
He’s one of the fastest players on the planet, so nobody was catching him.
Mbappe then threatened to shoot on his right foot before brilliantly cutting back, bamboozling a Lyon defender in the process, before sticking the ball past Anthony Lopes.
Watch the goal here…
And here’s another angle…
Absolutely outstanding from the young forward.
An early contender for the 2020 Puskas Award?
Mbappe’s goal – his second of the night – helped PSG secure a comfortable 5-1 victory.
He then completed his hat-trick just before full-time.
The French side are incredibly lucky to have him – but his performances and goals are not going unnoticed by Real Madrid or other top European clubs.
Can PSG keep him beyond this summer?
