    It's not just Mbappe., Did anyone see Di Maria's pinpoint passes ? Di Maria is as crucial as Mbappe in PSG because he provides with something which others don't I.e. his Vision for Passing.

      Yh I know right against Croatia, because Germany were so good that they got knocked out in the groups, Holland and Italy qualified and ripped the tournament.
      Any player coming off the bench, let alone a 20 yr old, who should have no reasons doing what he's doing , scores a Hattrick, grabs an assits, in an away ucl game and your trying to down play it, there are no excuses,none.
      "A world cup final against Croatia", at 19 in the final, oh let me put a laughing emoji at the end to show how salty and angry I am of Mbappe. Dude let me give you some advice, at the end of the day all he does is kick a ball, a ball. He's not solving world hunger, having threesome with the Kardashians. If your still salty just stop watching football, cuz this sport is too much for you. There you feel better about yourself now

    • Kevin Real
      Kevin Real 3 months ago

      Nope scoring in the world cup final at 19 makes you a world beater, breaking records consistently at 20, makes you a world beater, having over 100 goals makes you a world beater, become your country's youngest goal scorer in the WC, makes you world class. Stop being jealous

    • Bobby Punkt
      Bobby Punkt 3 months ago

      @Nhlonipho Buthelezi Maybe for the winning points but not for the individual brilliance. That's why Iniesta will be always rembered as a much better player than David Villa for example although Villa scored more goals. The final level is scoring many goals and perform world class (Messi, Ronaldo or Neymar are these type of players). Di Maria scores also a decent number of goals but he performs way better than Mbappe who's a speed merchant with a decent finishing.

      What job did Mbappe against ManUtd second leg? Or against Rennes in the Cup Final? There many players who can perform against Brugge or some farmers teams in Ligue 1. I don't see any good performances by Mbappe against good teams except in his rockie season at Monaco and against Argentina in the world cup.

    Let's be honest mgbappes figures are inflated rn he plays in a attack minded pooor French league which an out of peak ibra cavani score easy 30 goals a season and neymar scores nearly a goal a game which he never donne at barca. Mgbappe real test is when and if he goes to a team like barca City United Real etc. And has to get used to a new country and get used to playing much better teams week in and out

      @Aniket Aryan People forget games and try to make their reality a reality.

      He scored 2 goals against city in the 8th finals, 3 goals against Dortmund in the quarter-finals. 1 goal against Juventus in the semi final. In champions league he also scored against Liverpool, Bayern and also against United (1 goal and 1 assist). 1 assist vs Naples in the most important game in the group stage. Against the real it is he who is at the origin of the Paris goal in the first leg, dribbling marcelo.

      And besides that his world cup, where he destroys the Argentine, the urugay, will have had to have 3 assists against Belgium and his goal in the final

      @Boing Boyz Mbappé a finisher ? Haha have you ever watched a game with him??? Icardi and Cavani are good finishers, Mbappé is a clinical passer (13 assists lady year), a great goalscorer (39 last year) and a marvelous creator often at the origin of the action creating goalscoring opportunities almost on its own. As a french supporter, I can tell you he''s the guy who gives us goose bumps on the field, even more than Neymar.

    • Bobby Punkt
      Bobby Punkt 3 months ago

      @Csokops10 He's right. People don't watch his games. For example against Liverpool away: he was probably one of the worst players on the field but in the last minute when Neymar dribbled into the box and created the chance for Mbappe he scored. After he scored he lost the ball (because of his average technique) in the own half and Firminho scored the winning goal. People still say "He scored against Liverpool" like he destroyed the team which wasn't the case at all.
