France’s Kylian Mbappe Breaks Pele’s 60-year-old record

Sports

Kylian Mbappe, a 23-year-old French football player, has scored two goals against Poland in the FIFA World Cup 2022 Round of 16 match on Sunday, December 4, 2022, breaking the record set by Brazilian legend Pele. Kylian Mbappe is currently the most significant goal scorer in the FIFA World Cup 2022 beneath the age of 24.

The star of Paris Saint-Germain now has nine goals, which is the most by any player in the history of the FIFA World Cup. The most prominent member of the French team that won the World Cup in 2018 has now surpassed players like Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Pele, and Diego Maradona.

Kylian Mbappe has assisted Olivier Giroud once on game day, making him France’s all-time leading goal scorer. Olivier Giroud has surpassed the legendary Thierry Henry by scoring his 52nd goal for France with the assistance from Kylian Mbappe.

Even though Kylian Mbappe struggled for the majority of the day, he was able to convert two incredible finishes on either side of the top corner. Mbappe now has the same number of goals as Lionel Messi in the FIFA World Cup 2022, but he has played in three fewer tournaments than Messi.
